    Hi. I'm in the process of adding a lot of macros to my soft reef tank, and I'm concerned that I may have to get rid of some of my invertebrates to keep the new algaes from being eaten. I was wondering what snails, crabs, etc., you have had luck with. I'm hoping maybe I can move them to the refugium to eat the fast growing grape caulerpa, at least until the plants in the main tank grow large enough to withstand a little grazing. I'm very attached to my four emerald crabs, decorator crab, and large turbo snail. What have your experiences been?

    Turbos are fine either way.
    The critter list does not seem an issue, but do not hope they eat the Caulpera.
