Algae Eaters

    I have a 58 Litre aquarium (apparently 19G?) with 3 Peppered Corydoras which I plan on increasing to 6 and a BN which I'm planning on rehoming as soon as I can. I'm hoping to find an algae eater that is happy on its own and will go in my tank.

    In a tank that small you should be looking at nerite snails and ammao shrimp.

    Will they eat diatoms?

    You actually have a 15 gallon tank. What are the dimensions?

    I thought so, but someone told me it was actually 19G. Dimensions are 24" long by 12" wide by 15"deep

    Okay, dimensions tell me you have a 19 gallon tank (72 liters), so I'll stick with 19 gallons not 15 gallons. Dimensions don't lie.

    So, up the peppered cories to 8. And yeah, rehome the BN.

    Agreed with AK.
