    hey members

    i have quite a bit of caulerpa popping up in my tank !
    whats your take on this ? seems to grow super quick and pops up evrywhere ?
    how can one maintain this or eradicate it if need be ?
    is it the foxface or copperband that eat this ? or , do i just need to manually take it out ?

    thanks in advance

    Dropzone they are quite common in the trade (my exp), also one of the better fish to start off with. Will chouw your algea, Nori, flakes etc....just remember their spines are very poisonous (worse than a Lionfish)

    Although eating bubble algea....mmmmmm
