    That doesn't mean that it's good to have.

    I'd start by considering an investment in a phosphate test - or, run a polyfilter. It seemed to help with the nasties in my wife's 40 gallon reef/puffer tank.

    (And no, the puffer does not eat the corals :D )

    But seriously...isn't sticking a different pest in your tank kind of like replacing the alligator in your toilet with a python?

    Me thinks that the water changes helped with the cyano and hair problem, and now you're just causing a NEW, just as problematic of a problem by introducing more shtuff (and yes, you have to say the "H") into your tank.

    sigh. it needs to be said....herfert. Now then, I think the idea of any pet living in a toliet is a repulsive idea and should be shunned. much like the idea of trying to reason with...well...you get the idea
