im not so sure, but it is yellow - gold!!Is it a siamese or chinese algae eater? Siamese algae eaters, unless you have a flying fox, are peaceful fish and do not bully other fish. I have a bn pleco with my Siamese algae eater and they get along fine. The only reason I didn't get another siamese algae eater is because he wasn't that interested in cleaning up the algae as much as he was interested in eating the left over food. So I have him for scavenging and my bn pleco for algae. It works out quite well.
Chinese Algae Eater | Flickr - Photo Sharing! it looks like that!Well if it's a Siamese Algae Eater then it should look like this
They are only aggressive to their own species, unless kept in groups of five so I suggest keeping them either in that or single.
oh.. thanks... do you think that they can hurt my angelfishes??? should i turnt it back to the pet shop i bought it??? if i have to, what algae eater should i buy???That's a false flying fox or Chinese Algae Eater, they are aggressive fish when they get larger and only eat algae for a little while. They get quite big, and what they end up doing is snacking on your other fish. They will start to eat the slime coat and other stuff off the other fish in the tank. I don't suggest keeping them in a community tank, unless you can have a strictly aggressive tank or something that is full of fish that can handle themselves. I just don't trust the little buggers no matter how adorable they are.
