Re: Golden chinese algae eater
You can't put the CAE with African cichlids. CAE's are not loaches either. if I were you, get another tank (preferably 55g) to house it. Try Craiglist. Arulius barbs, filament barbs and danios often make suitable tankmates for CAE's.

It is about 10cm long. I wanted a passive tank. I happen to like loaches. I do have a cichlid tank and a coldwater tank as well. Can I put it with the cichlids? One very large pleco in there and one Jack Dempsey
and 2 african cichlids. Again not my choice either.
