    And it's the ocean flowing in our veins
    Oh..That it's the salt that's in our tears
    Oh..Cause we could have come so very far
    Oh..In at least as many years

    Manually remove the algae with some tweezers. You could remove the piece from the system and pluck the algae from it in a separate container of tank water so that algae fragments remain outside the system, then return the piece into the tank.

    That coral skeleton, by the way, may make a good 'frag station' (attach some other type of encrusting coral on it or super glue a stony coral frag to it.

    no point trying to treat lymphocystis. It is incurable unless you physically remove the infected part of the fish.

    Yeah, I am afraid to pair it up now...because I don't want to give its partner lymphocystis

    Emerald Crabs eat bubble algae. You could invest in some cleaner crews for the job.

    Yes with these crabs they are omnivorous things. I know that when they are small they are herbivorous but become carnivores later in life.

    They are considered semi reef safe... Most folks I know locally don't have issue with the crabs.. I only have several females in my display. So far I have not caught it chomping on any softies...
