    Purple Monti question

    Ok. The first picture does have a slight algae problem which was promptly put under control, and has not been an issue for months. I took the first pic RIGHT after i got it so polyps weren't out, and then took the new one just now after i moved it. For scale the new growth on the lip is about...

    Why don't some zoo's seem to like my tank?

    At night look for little black and white snails. They almost look like a closed zoo during the day but they hide well anyway. You can do a search on them--sun dial snails. They eat zoos.

    choc. chip star

    I am about 99% sure that they eat meaty foods and not algae, id feed em, and again they arent reef safe so your other a;gae eaters like snails are simply not safe with a predator in the tank..
