    In a nutshell...I'll say it depends on what fish you already have...you want to make sure that they are compatable...also the amount of fish you already have...you might even want to look into getting a Emerald Crab maybe...if it was me, I'll take the Lawnmover Blenny...have you tried reducing the GHA "naturally/gradually"..

    Check your Po4 levels!!!! And a turbo snail should sort out your GHA. But remember its always better to fix the cause instead of "hiding" the symptoms.
