    Hi All. My tank has been running for 1 month now and the LR has been in 2 weeks. I have purple algae and some small mushroom-like hairs growing. I have seen small snails. How long should I wait before adding CUC? There are no lights installed yet. Water is all within limits although alkalinity is high at 11.8

    thats ok, look at the top of the beginners forum, there is a sticky topic i did on clean-up crews.

    if all your params are fine, you can add a small CUC, hermits and snails to start, they are the most hardy
