    I went down to the local billabong today where many people go to fish out for yabbies and varies fish

    I saw an old tin bucket that was smack in the middle of the sun and inside was a thick lot of Algea

    Unfortunetly
    Inside the Bucket was a Blue Yabbie with one claw about 7inches long
    It is terribly covered in algea so much it cannot see
    so i bought it home and put it in a tank with a white convict cichlid.
    Im curious how can i get this algea off the yabbie to save it?

    Im not joking
    this is a terrible state of algea growthYou cannot really make out what is it unless u look closely
    Its a walking ball of algea...
    Lots of snakes and lizards

    It's a really pretty crayfish.
    Is there any way to hold him and do some manual removable? There are algae killer products, but I don't know what effect they would have on your tank, or it's population.

    Yea, how big is the guy. He might kill anybody that tries to eat off of him! lol. I googled yabbies and they are very cool. You are lucky you live around such nice wild fish. I think manual removal might be your best bet

    I don't think there is any algae eating fish that would have the patience to eat the algae from a moving object. If it did, it would probably stress out your Yabbie.

    try to hold him and use some sort of cloth/sponge/whatever to remove algea. ofcourse, make sure the thing you use hasnt been used before and isnt hurting the yabbie.
