I have a clown knife and a red tailed chalceus and they are both around 6inches and recently purchesed some feeder fish, they were labeled rosey minnows at a local fish store. they were very small around 1/2-3/4 inch aprox. i place around 10 in the tank and they ate all the algea off of my fine leaved plastic plants. this has been an ongoing problem since the tank became established, my algea eaters wouldn't touch the some plants. just some info i thought i would share. sadly the little vacums are gone but there will be more in the future.

Feeders are not good for the fish. I would not use them. It also teaches them to be aggressive.
