    This is the hairiest Snail I ever saw. How can I get it off him?

    My snails are growing hair algae as well even though my nitrate tests are showing 0. I wish they would give each other haircuts! I've been pulling off what i can and leaving the rest

    Pull him out of the water, and Q tip some hydrogen peroxide on the base of the algae. Obviously, don't get it on his foot or soft parts.

    I would do that but I don't want to kill the coralline!

    My halloweens love eating the hair algae off the snails. They then leave them alone
