    Forgot to add, the more you over feed the tank, the bigger they grow too. They seem to have fed well on left overs.

    Defo overfeeding that tank, they increase to combat the waste food etc

    Those are huge, tell him to cut down a bit on the feeding etc and they should naturally decrese.

    I had hundreds when I first got this tank, cannot see any now, and I have never had any issues.

    Yep I was amazed by the view when he fed the tank. Hopefully he is guna do summat about it now. Hes had a few downs recently due to work shortage and tank suffered etc. Hes back sorted now and keen to get his tank back to were it was b4. And its starting to look nice again. Hes doing regular water changes and new fish and soft corals and new lights so defo gettin back into this mint game.
