Algae Eaters

Post by haibane »

Do you know of any algae eaters that will hold up to the smaller cichlids? My tetras seem to be dominating my tank oddly enough, but I've started to get some algae almost daily. Its a pain to clean... this is probably due to the plant light needed. Oh well.

Hi Haibane,

Unfortunately I do not know my algae eaters.

But I do know if I cut the back light, and feed lighter, that less algae will appear. And cleaning your glass should be part of your regular maintenance chores, only take a little extra to wipe your glass down, when you do your water change, so you can see your fish better!
