    Have seen a few other tanks in the area, and have seen some really sad ones. Tanks where the whole tank is red and dark from cyano/algea, others where the clowns hosting in the nemmies, and the nemmies are half the size of the clown, sometimes feel sad seeing some other tanks.

    You ever get the feeling where you want to take over and rescue LS and save nemmies, or confiscate the tank.

    no ive never had that feeling. I have however given those people this address and gently asked them to join so that they can learn just like i did. its very hard to tell someone what they think is beautiful and an asset to their house, is in your eyes an eyesore of cycno and algaes. best to teach people slowly I think.

    nennies are often misunderstood and in innapropriate tanks, i for one dont often hold back that much when it comes to asking someone to take a nennie back if they are in the hands of inexperineced reefers or in unstable tanks. That applies to all LS though.

    but if its simple algae issue, then teaching someone to get approriate equipment, have good husbandry and understand what they are doing is by far the best rout

    It takes a time to join after a lot of failures and disasters. Your fed up and join MASA and then you want to kick your self by not joining earlier. Remember the LFS knows everything....... lol :(
