    Default Bubbles, Bubbles, Everywhere

    Since changing over to my new MH lighting my cyano has completely vanished, but I have bubble algae growing all over. What to do? They actually look kind of cool. Water params are all stable and normal.

    Removing them by hand works but be sure and try not to pop the them. I have heard that they release new spores when popped. Emerald crabs are said to help as well. I have the big bubble type, looks like deep green marbles, but I have never seen my emerald munching on them.

    i have a massive bubble problem too, i got an emerald crab but he only eats on the hair. when i had it in my nano i took every rock out and srubed it then rinsed it off (in clean saltwater) then added it back into the tank. i still have a few in there but not much. the 55 gal is a whole nother story!
