I’ll think on that. I do have a ramshorn that I didn’t knew where he came from but he’s still there eating some of the algae from the streak marks he make
I’ll probably will be purchasing these in the next week hopefully. My LFS does sell nerites but I’m not sure if they have algae eatersAgain ( I posted a few days ago ) a few nerite snail (3) there cheap and 1 Siamese algae eater within 1-2 weeks the tank will be like new
I was about to say “otocinclus rg” my LFS sell these and don’t have Chinese algae eater in stock should I get these?I got 3 OTOs and they cleaned all my algae off in a weekend (and continue to do so). Amazing and they are small. However, they are a crapshoot as some are badly starved by the time they reach the LFS and they really subsist mostly on algae.
I would recommend it. They are small, and they are relentless algae cleaners. My plants had a bit of brown and green algae...gone. They clean the glass and even the biofilm on my driftwood. Just awesome. Look for ones that have plumper stomachs. Do not get ones with sunken in stomachs as they will die.I was about to say “otocinclus rg” my LFS sell these and don’t have Chinese algae eater in stock should I get these?
Alright. I got 3 of these and are in process of introducing to the tank. I also bought floating plants. Floating lettuce that might help with the shade
Nice. Keep us posted. Honestly, they were 1.99 each and they've already done more for my tank than any other fish to clean up stuff.Alright. I got 3 of these and are in process of introducing to the tank. I also bought floating plants. Floating lettuce that might help with the shade
I snap these recently on how they’re doing if this means anything that they’re being fed (Yes the filter is filled with duckweed I try to keep it away from it)You can try small pieces of Zucchini or Algae Wafers and sometimes they will go for it. But they will usually find their meals on your glass and plants and decorations or driftwood and as long as it looks like they have a nice little round belly their doing just fine.
