    Any one had any experience with these little guys? I found like 3 or 4 in my sump in the refugium...very small, but quite cute little things. Anyway have read they are excellent algae eaters and herbivorous so no worries with the corals it seems, but cant find out what size they get to etc... anyone know anything?

    Not sure to be honest, they say origin is Caribean, but I havent got any american items in my tank, I am asuming it must have come in on some macro algaes that I bought from the LFS or on some that I harvested out of the rock pools locally.
