Yeah, the MP seems to be a magnet for it. When I got it, it was smothered in it and I never could get it all out. I finally settled for growing it out and trimming the portion that didnt grow any and growing that out. Which eventually got it

It grew fine for awhile but it was in the same tank as the older stuff and it eventually caught the algae from the older stuff after I didnt trim the algae off of it for a few weeks. I just pulled all of my MP out because its getting to be a PITA to keep up with. It was a sad day because I had a 10g packed FULL of MP. Well over $100 worth. Now all I have is whatever was attached to the driftwood, which is algae free....for now.

Ouch on the MP loss. Hopefully it will grow it clear this time. Sorry I forgot to reply to this been messing with the tank, by the way I started a new journal so subscribe when you get a chance the last one is getting put away... It is getting way too long and I didn't want people too go through 100+ pages too find a new tank layout with akadama lol.

As much as I could use the $$, no, I am gearing up to set up a scape just for them These are my favorite crypts so far. I do thank you for your nice comments tho Anyday the stuff will arrive in the mail and I will post more pictures as the 65g comes down in anticipation for a giant new scape in February. The first to go will be the MQ, Which will be a carpet for the new Keei tank

Those snow pearls are awesome. It reminds me of winter for sure. I've been doing a similar experiment with blue pearls and yellow shrimp. Looking forward to the keei setup!

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.
