    Finally rid of hair algae

    Well I finally won the war against my hair algae

    I really didn't do anything different, except I started to rinse the frozen food before adding it to the tank. The hair algae is completely gone. I may have to get rid of my lawnmower blenny. I finally have my long sought after coralline algae starting to cover the rocks

    All is well once more.

    Don't get rid of him, feed him some macroalgae, mine likes Sea Veggies (Ivan has). What if it comes back? They are great fish IMO

    BTW glad to hear you've overcome it.

    I feed sea veggies from a clip to my purple tang and bellus angel. I've never seen my lawnmower blenny eat it thought? He probably will now since the algae is gone

    Or try the green one. I recently bought the red (Ivan was out of green) and he will actually eat it but not if there is green sea veggies in the tank. IMO he may like the green better especially if he ate the hair algae
