My tank doesn't really have any green hair algae anymore. Ive had my Halloween hermit for a couple months now and it's definitely gotten bigger. Ive caught it nipping on coral a couple times. Ive tried putting nori in the tank and all my hermits go after it, but they cause a HUGE mess. I really like how it looks, but should i give it away?

Also, my 2 trochus snails have doubled in size. I guess this is a good indication that my tank parameters are decent. Thanks in advance.

Thats really a question for yourself, problem of some of the specimens we keep, some will mess with your corals, some will not. Question is do you like the Halloween hermit more than the corals it messes with lol.

This is the reason I won't have anymore Sand Sifting gobies, I got really tired of them dumping sand on the coral i was keeping on the bed, and they would just wreck the sandbed. Never again, rather vaccum the sandbed myself lol.
