    image.jpeg image.jpeg so I got green and black bubble algae all over my rocks. Problem is some of the pieces are awesome, one even has a bubble mushroom and a feather duster. I am moving in the next few months , so can start again. Thought maybe if I get enough emerald crabs it might help , any advice will be awesome.

    I should never have bought old live rock, what a nightmare it's been with critters coming out the woodwork.
