yeh, i might do that then. Whats the small fish i see sucking the glass, is that a form of loach, and does it get too big?

Well there is quite a few suckers so to speak.. Chinese algea eaters will get to up to 12inches...
BN pleco would be to big for your tank so maybe just some nice snails..

Yeh, didnt think of snails as an option. Do they not leave slime in their path?

Fair enough, thats cool.

Today I added my 1st fish, 5 Cherry Barbs. And I have identified that I want a bristlenose pleco for the bottom of the tank.

Just a warning, if you wish to keep a BN pleco you will need to either get better filtration or vacuum your tank a lot. BNs produce about twice the waste of most fish their size and get to be 4-5 inches. I wouldn't say they can't be kept in a 10gal because I currently have one in my 10 gal, but my tank is way over filtered and I make sure to vacuum up the waste regularly.

Thanks for the advice Lorax, I picked up a vacum yesterday, so I'll bear that info in mind, and make sure I vacum regularly.

I wouldnt reccomend a bn in a 10g.. They make a lot of mess and they need a lot of room.. So maybe go with some otos google them they are really neat!
