    That did cross my mind. I think I will just pull some algae off the screen and drop it in the tank. Instead of buying yet another type of food. Between the snails and the scrubber Im not worried about any algae growth in the tank.

    True, only the bottom inch of the screen is in the water.

    So? :shock:

    Crabs will venture out of the water to eat. They get exposed to the air all the time on some reefs or coast lines.

    Put a little ladder in the bucket so the crabs and run up and down to eat. Cut a hole in the side of the bucket and install a clear plastic lens. Film your trained crabs marching up and down the ladder to forage on your algae scrubber. Post the video to Living Reefs. :Cheers:
