    I have an asterina infestation. Looking for someone who has a harlequin that has done duty in their tank and they want to move on

    I recently had a red algae problem in my tank, was advised to use Chemi clean.

    After using this product as recommended on the box:

    Cons:
    Lost alot of my SPS and i still dont know why.
    Clam died
    LPS still recovering, maybe 85% recovered.

    Pros:
    Red algae subsided
    Asterina stars, non existant
    Aiptasia, untraceable.

    Please note this is what i experienced, it was K@K to lose the above, would have chosen to deal with the pro's instead of losing the cons. would not recommend this product.

    Goodluck with the infestation.

    Are you high?

    He asked about a shrimp that eats starfish :eek: Chemi clean has buggerall to do with asterinas. Its a anti-biotic which kills bacteria, i.e. cyanobacteria

    Thanks Nur, but Im sorted for algae or aptaisia. I wouldn't even mind the asterinas so much if it was only correline they were attacking, but they are attacking GSP, montis and mushrooms, even seen some on my featherdusters
