Okay so iv got a 20 gallon with some guppies, SAE and 1 small Common pleco witch will be moved when he is bigger, but recently i hvae notced lots of algae, what could i add to help with the problem?
Noo, Not that tank. Thats One of my others. I Just have'nt listed it in my aquarium info yet because im sorting out some other old tanks that used to belong to friends. Ive gone a bit tank crazy and purchased 3 in a month. This Tank is 20 gallon with Just Guppies, Common Plec and SAE. The Algae is Green algae, iv tried reducing the light but its not helping so any fish that enjoy eating algae, not a CAE because i had some befor and didnt like them.
Well first off I'd take your common pleco back to the store and trade him in for a smaller pleco like a bristlenose or something along those lines. How many guppies do you have in the tank? Maybe get some snails or some otos they'd have the tank clean in no time.
It doesn't matter really how large or small the pleco is regaurdless for his size he produces a lot of waste for his size and I have no doubt that your ammonia levels are out the roof. You could get a snail or so to help but personally I'd just take the pleco back and get a BN I believe they're more active regaurdless but I don't know for sure.
