adding a clean up crew
I have a 55 gallon tank inhabited by two goldfish. it's only been up and running for around 3 1/2 weeks and i'm beginning to get an outbreak of brownish algae.
i've cut down the photo-period by about two hours a day, but i'm wondering if there's anything else i can do to help.
is there a fish i can safely add to the tank that will help out and eat some of this junk?
black mollies eat TONS OF ALGAE!
black mollies huh?
i just want to make sure whatever i get will get along with the goldfish and won't produce too much extra waste. also they'll need to be able to survive at 72F.
are there any tests i should run to make sure the tank can handle a couple of extra fish at this point?
any other suggestions?
An algae scraper is your best bet. Diatoms are part of the ecosystem. No need to get a fish to do the job for you.
