People have said that seahares eat them and I've read that certain fighting conch's will eat it also. I'm not really sure as I've never had one of these.

There is a product on the market, called red slimer remover which seemed to work very well for me. But, after I had used it, I was told that it wasn't a good idea to use it on a tank that has not aged at least 6 months.

Water changes, turkey baster, cleaning filters and running some phosban should easily do the trick. But again, this is normal and all new tanks go through this cycle. With the water changes, etc. the cylce will run it's course.
