    Several Questions

    Hello,
    Ive got a couple of questions, and thought it would be easiest to put them all into one thread.

    1. Generally, how quickly do zoanthids multiply, and what are their ideal conditions? Water flow, lighting, feeding, etc?

    2. What would be a fair price to pay for a small (Approx. 0.25$ size) green riccorda frag? The LFS has one for $30.

    3. Finally, I seem to have an algae problem, but only on my sand bed. I am using Ro water, both nitrates and phosphates are 0. My light bulbs are only about 4 months old. I cant seem to think what else might cause me to have the issue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the help.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    1) Slow-moderate flow, mid-low light, under proper conditions and enough nutrients they should grow pretty fast, check garf.org for more info.

    2) depends on species, you looking at 10-30 dollars, i wouldn't pay over 15 if i didn't know what species it was

    3) ur best best is a clean up crew like hermits, if its hair algae u mgiht even try lettuce nudibranch. strawberry conch also good a good job cleaning the substrate
