    Do you test the water for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate with liquid test kits? What's your water change schedule?
    The problem isnt with the algae eaters its with the fact that the swordtail was ready to give birth but then just didnt. i dont care if some get eaten because there are TONS of hiding spots for fry. i use test strips to test it and it all comes out good. The algae eaters are simple chinese algae eaters and i do water changes every week

    Right ok. Keep an eye on your CAEs. They stop being simple when they get bigger (and my goodness to they get big!) and become quite aggressive when they go off algae.
