    Hector's goby for hair algea?

    Hi everebody!
    I'm new here!!!!!!!! (Thanks to Toutouche)

    I have a bit of an algea bloom now (not crazy but ennoying).

    PO4 readings = 0,0 salifert
    NO3 readings= 0,2 ppm salifert

    What do you think of an Hector's Goby as part of the solution (as a top-down solution as we say about food webs).

    See liveaquaria.com under the goby section for description...
    Thanks!!!

    Welcome! as you make more posts you will upgrade from bacteria.
    i dont know about Hector's Goby, but i got 3 Rainfordi Gobies today for that same purpose. (i think liveaquaia even has a sale on them).

    Cool

    I'd have to say yes as that gobie looks to be a VERY close relative of the RAINSFORD! very nice.

    give it a shot! Mine work very well but there RAINFORDS but they look so closely related that I'm sure that the diet is the same.
