Algae eaters

I never would have guessed this, had to see the results to believe it.

I have a 5 G I had betta spawn in. I moved them into the fry tank today,and put one adult guppy and 2 older fry in the 5G just to keep it cycled and have a qt tank. That was 11AM. The tank had been sitting for over 2 weeks w/o a filter. No fish but for the fry. The tank walls and gravel were a green blanket. I was planning to put an apple snail in the tank when I got around to it....
Well, I was gone most of the day. I fed the fish at 9 pm. Went in to feed the guppies, and had to look twice. The tak is CLEAN. No green film anywhere!

So, I guess Guppies might work too!

A pleco in every tank!
Just add water and they grow!
