Hi all
I know this isnt the right bit of the forum but really don't know what type of fish i have so this looked like the best place to post.
I've been given 5 fish by a friend (due to a crack in his tank:cry:) but i have no idea what they are and all i got from him was "well there name sort of sounds like ......."

I have 3 algae eaters
