View Full Version : Algae Eaters

07-04-2005, 11:41 PM
I have a well established 10 gallon tank, with many plants. There is a thin layer of algae which would nicely support an algae eater but I've been unable to find information on whether or not these fish can live in the brakish environment. I have a chinese algae eater in my 30 gallon which does quite well but I've seen contradicting information on their tolerance for salinity. Can anyone help?
