I had to give away my Chinese Algae Eater to my work ( a pet store) because he was becoming too aggressive. He was fighting with my Red-tail constantly and wouln't let my Bristlenose come out from behind the filter and my cory tokk a battering. I gave him in and got $10 credit along with my big discount that I get.

Though you made the right decision J-Man, I love my Chinese algae eater! He (I presume it's a male because I have no idea what it is, lol) never really bothers any of my fish. And I never see any algae forming in my tank so I suppose he does a good job. And I do see him a lot cleaning the bottom, the wood, and even the glass. I might get another one like this.

Be patient, learn all you can and show willingness to work and it will all come to you. The more you know the more valuable you are to them.

I also had to give mine up recently as well chasing my two black mollies all over the tank and stressing them out. Returned them got 2 ottos instead. Chinese Algae Eater are very aggressive fish.
