    What is the best Loracariid for the Mbuna Cichlid tank that will live in Hardwater? I also want it to eat algae, if there happens to be any.

    Bristlenose plecos are the best bet for eatingalgae/keeping the glass clean in an mbuna tank. Just make sure there's sufficient cover for the pleco to escape overactive cichlids.

    What cover do they like? Rocks maybe? I think I have a dwarf Plecostomus, but that is what it was sold as. A white-orange color.

    Many plecos prefer driftwood in the tank and will hide under that as well as rasp on it, depending on the species. Caves of some sort are also welcome and can be rockwork, porcelain, wood, even PVC piping. Just somewhere to hide.

    I'm worried that driftwood might change the pH of my tank for the Mbunas. What is a good wood? Fake? I have plenty of caves.
