    My crabs and snails are digging at my live rock and I've now got a small pile of rock droppings starting to accumulate. Is there anything I should do about this? Thanks, Catherine

    Some people scrub their rocks off with a toothbrush before they add them to the tank. Your animals are just picking off what would have come off with a scrubbing anyways.
