Best algae eater?
I've got algae in my male guppy's tank, and it seems to be spreading quickly. What's the best fish to buy that will clear it up, and will get along with my guppies in a smallish tank? I can move it to a bigger tank after the algae's gone...
Otocinclus, aka Otos are oyu best bet as they will stay small and 3-5 of them will eat a lot of algae. If you don't want another fish, amano shrimp or cherry red shrimp will eat a lof of algae also.
Oto's, oto's, oto's or maybe flying foxes.
Otos and farlowella catfish, snails or caridina family shrimp.
I'm going to have to take this list to my fish shop, to see if they can get any of them! I haven't seen any of them here before, and I've been told that they just don't import otos at all.... hrmph >.<
Will let you know of progress!
Hollie, what is the size of the bigger tank?
The biggest one is 8g.
definitely otos or cherry shrimp for an 8g tank. neither adds much bioload, but both are sensitive to water conditions.
