Let the new "A-Team" (Algae team) combat the algae war for you!!!  Guaranteed, YES!  If you have any doubts, simply take a photo of your aquarium before you introduce the "A-Team" and after.  If the "A-Team" did not clean your aquarium, we'll give you your money back!
That's correct, they will rid your substrate, plants, rocks, driftwood, etc of algae.  And clean your glass.
What is the "A-Team"?:  It's a lethal (non-military) algae eating team consisting of Fiddler crabs & Nerite snails.  They can & will become a permanent addition to your aquarium, if you desire.  (Note: these snails will NOT breed/reproduce in freshwater)

FIDDLER CRABS - You won't believe the results until you see with your own eyes !!! They literally take each and every piece of substate in their mouth, clean it, and return it.  (hundreds per hour !!!)  Watch one in action here.
Fiddler crabs are a perfect natural way to control algae! 
The will eat the algae off your substrate.
They will not eat your plants.
They are easy to maintain.
They are very hardy.

  • Temperature of water: Maintain the temperature of your tank water between 60-90 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • pH of water: 6.00 to 8.50.
NERITE SNAILS- These algae eating snails will clean up your tank.  Watch one in action here.

They will clean your glass (as well as plants) The results are withinvisable  minutes/hours/days. As they move across the glass, they leave a super clean path, approx. 3/4' wide behind them.  They are voracious algae eaters. They will not breed in freshwater, only in brackish water.

A-Team should stand for "Amazing Team" April 22, 2013
Reviewer: Ricardo Colon from Doral, FL United States  
I purchased an A-Team Platoon to address a 120 Gallon aquarium that was completely covered with algae.  Every surface was green and unrecognizable in original color due to the thick coated, long strand algae that was covering the tank.  My plants suffered terribly as they were also covered. I followed his instruction and decided to surprise myself.  I walked away from the tank and waited until the next morning. OMG! I could not believe the difference they made overnight.  They were moving around like Hazmat at a Chemical spill. By the 5th day every area of my tank was completely devoid of algae.  They cleaned the wood, the rocks, the glass the plants and the sub straight.  They even cleaned the plastic intake tubes that feed my filters.  The algae eating Fiddler Crabs & the algae eating Nerite Snails have created an Environmental Homeland Security team in my aquarium.   Id recommend it to anyone.

Snails Great - Crabs Dead November 10, 2012
Reviewer: Keith Riley from Fayetteville, GA United States  
Bought 6 A-Team sets... arrived in perfect condition, well-packed, etc. Within 48 hours all 6 crabs had diet. Water temp, Ph, and all other parameters right on target. They started eating algae the second they went into my aquarium (after recommended acclimation). Guess what: fiddler crabs need a place to sit above the surface of the water. Recommended if you have a setup where they can air themselves out.

Wow, that's clean! May 5, 2011
Reviewer: Dean Cousino from Hooksett, NH United States  
I can't believe how fast these little guys clean up the tank!  I ordered 11 'teams' and got 19 crabs and 15 snails!  One of the crabs didn't make the trip, but all of the snails did.  The crabs have made the substrate immaculate!  The snails are making quick work of all of the algea!  I just hope I have enough for all of the crabs to eat!

Compliments January 7, 2011
Reviewer: Chet Grycz from El Cerrito, CA United States  
I am writing to admit that when I read your promotion of the "A-Team," I thought that while it was worth a try, it would most likely turn out to be a lot of exaggerated claims.  I was prepared to be disappointed.

Having let the "A-team" do their work for a couple of weeks, I am entirely convinced.  They have cleaned corners of the tank I couldn't reach, have done a number on flexible piping and equipment, to say nothing of cleaning rocks and decorations.  The "A-Team" is absolutely amazingly efficient and the fiddler crabs are fun to watch... I even got some for my wife's 1st grade classroom aquarium to the delight of the 1st graders.

What's not to like?  Thanks loads for making these available, so that we home enthusiasts could put these industrious little critters to work for us.  Happy New Year.
