    I have been seeing now how much algae my evil kole tang picked off my rocks weeks after I banished him. Despite having 3 algae eating fish (lawnmower blenny, coral beauty, and foxface), they apparently don't like to pick at the rocks :shock: I'm seeing a few patches of algae LOL I now have to actually maintain my tank :mrgreen:

    The foxface has always been lazy; I've known this. The coral beauty spends most of the day in her cave until it's feeding time. And the blenny does pick on the rocks, but apparently doesn't get it all.

    I'm going to see what happens if I skip algae sheets for a week :)

    My sump is teeming with algae LOL The ball of chaeto is huge, though. Time to trim it.
