    As long as there pooping there eating. As long as you don't see them getting thin there good. You could also peek in on them at night with your cell phone light.

    They say SAEs or flying foxes do. I tried them they don't. The only thing I found that actually eats hair algae are ramshorn snails. I must warn you they will breed and breed and if you don't have fish that will eat there eggs or babies they will take over your tank. That's why they call them pest snails.
