Idea...


I am getting my first fish for my 75 gallon tomorrow :) It will be stocked with African Cichlids. Would the Chinese algae eater be able to live with them?

Also, what would be a good replacement for the algae eater in the current 30 gallon he is in, because he really did clean the gravel and glass well.

I would honestly not keep the Chinese Algae Eater with any other fish. They really do not do well within community settings and if kept need to be a species only. If this fish was already going after any of the other fish in the current tank, it will go after the new ones. I personally would not take the risk if he is suspected in causing problems for the other fish.

I concur with Barb. As for a replacement in the 30g, remember that any so-called algae-eating fish will only handle certain algae types. Otos, Farlowella, Bristlenose eat common green algae and diatoms. Other algae such as brush, hair, etc are more problematic (if they occur, they sometimes do and sometimes not depending upon the tank and conditions) and these fish are useless with those. Snails are about the best "cleaners" in general.
