seagrass safe?

Hi, I am in the happy process of growing out some seagrass and was just wondering what kind of clean up crew would be ideal for my setup. Basically, it's just halophila, no fish, stone chaeto to keep the hair algae and cyano down until the grass grows out, and some C02. I heard blue legs are not sea grass safe, but that Strombus was. Can anyone vouch for these mollusks? I would like something that eats hair algae but not angiosperms . Thanks

Heh, you might be better served on a reef/saltwater forum, This is mostly freshwater.

+1 this forum is pretty much focused on freshwater planted, and related stuff..

While I find the concept of saltwater planting interesting, I don't really have any experience with them, and I've not heard seagrass, blue legs, or Strombus mentioned here before at all.

This is an interesting topic. I'd like to see a saltwater planted tank section on this forum.

Hmm, that is interesting. I certainly thought marine planted tanks would be found here as well. None the less, thank you for your input.

On a side note, if you like FW planted tanks, you might really enjoy salt. Other than seagrass and mangroves, there are no underwater marine true-plants, making these exceptionally rare beauties something to be passionate about. I personally get far more excited about my seagrass than I ever would a coral, yet I can have that flash of coral color wherever I want it. It's quite enjoyable.
