mine was the red slime. But I'd say that anything that grows alot on the sandbed the yellowhead would work over pretty good. It's not that the goby liked eating the red slime, It's just that he turned the sand over alot and it just covered it and it went away in about 5-7 days. I used a turkey baster to kind of blast stuff off the rocks until one day I looked at it and it just wasn't there anymore. It's probably worth a shot. They aren't to expensive, but once you've got him, and the algae problem goes away, you have a problem with sand dusting. I would rather have this problem than the algae though.. now I have a flatworm problem lol, Luckily I've found that just blasting them off of stuff everyday makes for a nice treat for my 4 strip damsel and the trio of green chromis.
