    With just one of these there is no need to worry about anything. They will eliminate bristle worms, all snails, bryopsis, gorilla crabs, hair algae, bubble algae, copperband butterflies, tangs (all sizes) lionfish, angels, gobies, clownfish (including designer clownfish) pipefish and manta ray fry.
    Guaranteed. I just collected a few dozen (I had a bristle worm problem) You only need 1 :thumbup:

    They eat them in Baltimore, New Jersey, North Carolina and in my house in New York.
    And that is what they are for. I just got 14 of them and tomorrow I hope to get another bucketful.
    You got to eat. :tt2:

    I have had them in my tank, tiny ones. but they get to the size I posted in 2 years. I have also kept them many times in a small tank, but no matter what other creatures I put in with them, for some reason, those other creatures always disappear. :eek:
