    Has anybody had luck with their Naso tang eating the bubble algae in their tank? I all of a sudden have an outbreak in the 100 and don't want to chance putting any kind of crab(emerald), but have room for one tang (6ft long tank).

    Anybody have luck with other tangs eating it?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    If it helps, I have two emerald crabs in my 180, they've got rid of my bubble algae and I've had absolutely no problems with them whatsoever!
