Alex, my biggest Chinese Algae Eater of my 2 Chinese Algae Eaters is starting to grow big and I am wondering if I can house him in a bigger tank with African Cichlids. Can I do this as he gets bigger?
African cichlids are petty much the only fish that can be kept with cae, not saying the cae won't harass and injure them though. . They will only tolerate the slime coat sucking for so long before they intervene.
I don't know a whole lot on the matter. I've watched a few you tube vids displaying the interaction between the 2. I wouldn't keep cae with anything I didn't want to get tortured or worse.Please specify which African Cichlids you mean. Kribensis and the other West African dwarf cichlids are not good tank mates for large CAEs.
