I just purchased a Siamese algae eater that I like a lot.
He's the longest of my other fish so he stands out quite a bit. In my reading, I learned that they're amazingly efficient and gentle (on plants) algae eaters.

3 Platies, 1 molly mut, 1 Siamese algae eater, 2 Neolamprologus Facicula cichlids

Hi jimmy , Just seen your post . I think the rasboras are too aggressive for the chocolate gourami and really the chocolates i kept liked the lower third of the tamk much like the dwarf cichlids so i doubt it will work. Chocolates are extremely difficult to keep. The cichlids go well in mopst tanks as long as water parameters allow for it, they do like hte floor to themselves. If your basing your decision on stats that say chocos like 7ph they're wrong, thye like it in the low 6's and breed in high 5's. Whats more they can be scared to death. Perhaps a sprcies tank for the chocos.
