Me and my algae crew are going to be good friends
I've got two ottos and an SAE (real one, not the pseudo one) in my 60 gallon (which I need to put up an updated pic of). I always thought ottos were cute and I wanted the SAE because 1.) I've always wanted one and 2.) my water has a lot of phosphates and likes go grow algae despite a heavily planted tank. I don't even dose phosphates or else it really gets out of control.
Anyway, where I live, the real SAE is very hard to come by so when I found someone selling them, of course I got one. :D
The crew has been hard at work and enjoying themselves. I noticed last night someone worked quite diligently on a stone wall decoration I have and got it squeaky clean. Yesterday the top of it was green. Today, it looks like it does after I've scrub it.
I had to give them a raise and bumped up the light hours to grow enough algae for them.
