    I just went and bought an algae eater for my tank and I already have a glofish in my tank along with other fish but my algae eater has been following my glofish around like CRAZY. Is it possible that an algae eater would eat a glofish? Thanks. :)

    Hi Kristen,
    Welcome to fishlore :;hi2

    What kind of algae eater is it?

    Some of the algae eaters out there can be aggressive and nip at other fish.

    Does your glofish look stressed (i.e. running away) or is more of a communal type following?

    Knowing the type of algae eater will allow us to help better.

    I can tell you if its anything but an otto your over stocked. false Siamese algae eaters would do this. Glofish also need bigger tanks for schooling in.
