I have been thinking about getting a small algae eater for a while now. Algae isn’t really a problem. But it is kind of annoying when I see it on a lot of different things. I have three nerite snails that do most of the job well, but they can’t get to the leafy or thin plants. This is frustrating because plants are where the algae mainly builds up. I have a 20 gallon tank with 3 Cory’s and 2 German blue rams. I also have 10 cardinal tetras on the way. I am looking for a fish that can be kept singular in a 20 gallon and will eat algae and fish food, as I don’t know if I have enough algae to sustain a fish that only eats algae. So far all I have found are plecos but none seem to fit in a 20 gallon. Plus, plecos have a very big bio load. Does anyone know of a fish like this?
