    Coralline algae, whilst lovely to look at, is smothering my live rock and blocking it. I have a couple of tuxedo urchins that I thought would help keep it under control, but they don't, they seem to ignore it.. Is there anything I can look out for that will graze on it? Don't really want anything too big, so long spine urchin is out of the question.

    Thanks

    Sorry, didn't see your reply. I thought so with the urchins, looks like i'm a bit stuffed then. I don't want to introduce any more for fear of removing the food source already there for the current tank mates. Will have to try and think of something as the poor rocks are quite blocked up now.
