    Would go with Mexican turbo snails rather and a yellow tang (depending on the size of the tank of course). I have nothing against sea hares except if they ink themselves bye bye system, but if he's feeling brave...

    I found first cleaning the tank with a sponge and scraping the algae off the glass with a blade then using a toothbrush or something to clean live rock and everything else with long hair algae works. Gives the Turbo snails and herbivorous fish a head start. Sometimes overfeeding can be the problem. How much food does he give a day?

    Think he is only feeding once a day now he has been trying to scrub the liverock and clean the glass etc for a while now the poor oak wants to give up the hobby:(

    He has old lights though which i have heard can cause algae not sure if this could be the problem

    That would probably be best :) If he could test nitrates and phosphate levels and post the results with a pic of the algae. Doubt its the lighting, generally the algae blooms are started because of nutrients in the water.
