I didn't see mention in thisthread of the tank size...before you replace the Crossocheilus Siamensis which is most probably actually Crossocheilus langei, check the profile info; this fish gets to 6 inches, should be in a group of 6, and thus needs at least a 4-foot length tank. The profile also explains the name issue. Click shaded name for the profile. Also, the Flying Fox is a very similar fish but useless for algae, if that was intended. Check its profile too; it is best alone, due to its aggressive nature with conspecifics, and I would expect the similar Siamese AE.
Was the former owner of this tank using similar water to you? I know you are on a well. Should check this before we start suggesting adjusting water.
