I wish I had seen this thread yesterday! Today I finally got around to a much-needed cleanup on my 30g - it's a semi-neglected tank that pretty much looks after itself, and I let it go a bit over the past month or so. There was quite a buildup of coralline and green 'dust' algae on the glass, as well as some red turf algae on the rockwork which is still present. part of the problem is that the CUC in the tank consists of one trochus snail and one Hawaiian hermit; it's definitely time to go shopping for custodians!

Today I can see my clowns, but the rocks are decidedly fuzzy. I'll see if I can get a picture tomorrow to add to the thread - maybe one of you guys can tell me what eats this red algae and I can get rid of it!
