ok since my recent investment into new lights, i have noticed more green hair algae popping up. and my tank is getting more algae faster, i have two mexican turbo snails a zebra crab and 3 misc crabs and two little snails. what would be a good clean up crew for my tank? its a 30 gallon tank

thanks in advance..

I added a sea hare to eat up all the HA. :D It wasn't terrible but I didn't want it to get our of hand either.

mexican turbos come from 62-72 degrees water. they are very sluggish in a warm tank.

philipine pyramids and indonesian black foot trochus are from much warmer waters.
