was just making vadersmom aware of the fact that they "have been known" to prey on small shrimp and fish some get lucky and some don't but as responsible aquarist I felt I should have at least gave her a heads up Very Happy

the key word is SHOULD. I had a protein skimmer. Hair algae is just a new tank syndrome

Most people do end up with hair alge yes its is normal but to get a handle on it and get it under control a skimmer will help along with normal and regular water changes.

You can get a sally lightfoot but keep in mind any crab added to the tank is a risk. A tang is not the answer either especially depending on the size of the tank they need a big tank to be happy. Also your not actually fixing the problem you need to find the problem and go from there.
