I remember you posting about your yellow tang eating your grasses, ThePurple12. I don't think they're supposed to do that. Seagrass is too fibrous. Isn't their preference filamentous algae? Maybe the shoal grass was the closest thing available?

I'm glad you brought it up again, because I've considered one for my tank. I've got a smorgasbord of algae, but would it go after my seagrass after that? I agree that the manatee grass is a good bit more substantial than the shoal grass, so maybe it would be fine.

I'd like to find a fish that eats most macro and micro algae, but not Manatee grass or sponges. Ah research…
