  2. What kind of algae eater is this?

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    Hey everyone! I recently adopted a tank from an owner who passed. I was told I was getting a Siamese Algae Eater, and I've come to think that's not the case. In fact, this fishy I have does not look like a true or false SAE, nor a CAE or flying fox. Is it possible he's a mix of some of the...

    Of course the first thing that caught my eye when I arrived at the San Francisco airport was this beautiful amazonian biotope tank in one of the waiting areas. The fish in there were pretty boring, couple congo tetras, a few pleco, no corys to be spotted :( This crazy chaining floating plant...
