I replied in your other thread also. It is a Chinese algae eater, not SAE.

Agree on their algae eating abilities, but only when juvies. Once they reach adulthood they lose their taste for algae and move on to other foods. As adults these fish are also known to attach to other fish in order to feed off of their slime coats.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
