I am not a fan of SAE's at all.Zentuckyfriedchicken said:I will try to see if the tank can be moved... Aren’t Siamese Algae Eaters aggressive? I have a Topfin 60 power filter and do water changes every week around 25% I do have algae wafers,but as for them not being effective, why do people produce algae farms for otos then? If I got 6 otos there wouldn’t be turfwars with the Corys? (36x12 inches bottom panel)
Ottos are some of the best. They do not eat all types though. Black beard, long hair algae. No algae eater eats green water. As I understand green water can be handled with a quality UV sterilizer of the proper size.Zentuckyfriedchicken said:Lynn said that otos aren’t effective... As for you saying they need more then then algae, I have algae wafers with zucchini. How are you determining if the tank isn’t overstocked?
Definitely get some plants in there. Pennywort and floating plants are good at cleaning up. Duckweed is something of a commitment, once it’s established it can be hard to get rid of.Zentuckyfriedchicken said:Looking at the surface area the Corys use less then half the foot print. The spend half the time swimming and half the time “passed out”. I could see ottos fitting. I will post a pic of the algae.
There. This tank is near the end of the week of maintainence (looking gross) on sundays I scrub it and then it collects back up. I’m not asking the ottos to do all the work. If they could keep the side panels cleaner then they are then, hurray!
