    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.

    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 agressive fish.
