On the saltwater aquarium, too much algae can suffocate marine life, and too little is not healthy for animals who need algae in their diet. To control and get rid of algae in the saltwater aquarium you need some sea animal like fish and snail who eat algae such Surgeons or Tangs and Turbo Snails.

Saltwater fish who eat algae are another choice. You might consider angelfish, blennies or tangs. The angelfish and tang are smart additions because they will nibble constantly on green algae. Meanwhile the blennies are outstanding due to their ability to eat both red and green algae without damaging decorations. Keep in mind, saltwater fish cannot live by algae alone; they must also be fed an appropriate diet recommended by the breeder.

Turbo snails are native to the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico. There are about 60 species of turbo snails that can be considered aggressive cleaners and will scour your entire saltwater aquarium, top to bottom, eating nuisance algae. At the same time, these snails will bulldoze loose rocks and may rearrange your aquarium. If they fall over and onto their backs, they may die if they aren't righted. Make sure to have rubble in the sand bed so they can right themselves, and avoid keeping turbo snails with aggressive fish that may intentionally flip them over. Turbo snails are great for battling green hair algae.Best Marine Saltwater Algae Eating Fish In this video I talk through the best saltwater algae eating fish.
