    Hi All!

    Awhile ago there was a post running about the icky brown hair algae in our tanks. There were several options given for getting rid of it, but nothing firm. I have simply continued to pull it out of the tank in handfuls every so often.

    Then, last month, I bought 8 mollies to have a nice group of fish that didn't hide as much as my others. Within minutes of dropping the mollies into the tank they were working on the algae stuck on my lava rock. There hasn't been a bit of hair algae in my aquarium since! And the fish are so pretty!

    thanks for the tip. I'm going to have to pick up a little group of mollies.
