Chinese Algae Eater with mollies?

My 29 gallon was empty except for a silver molly. And so I decided to go and buy some fish. I got two black mollies, couple and a Chinese algae eater because tank has algae all over the back. I have heard that they get aggressive but I am not exactly sure. Last night he was just hiding under a cave and does not get out until this morning. What do you guys know about this fish? At what size do they start to get aggressive and do they go well with mollies?

The profile of this fish is listed under "Tropical Fish Profiles". Check it out. Doesn't sound like a good community fish. Does become aggressive as it matures, and it gets large. Because mollies don't stay near the bottom, you may be okay, but you've got things to consider if you want other types of fish in the future.
