That's a busy little dude. I wish they didn't lay those cement eggs everywhere, but I will freely admit that they are awesome against most algaes.

If you want them gone, then hunt and destroy them ruthlessly right now. Once you get them breeding it's a lost cause. At the moment they're tiny and relatively small in number, so there's a chance...
