    Just wanted to say howdy. Get my feet wet and all. Pretty new to the hobby- 'my' aquarium actually belongs to my kids... Ha! Little do they know...
    I'm a SAHM w/ 3 kids, a great hubby, 7 horses, a golden retriever, a few barn cats, several danios, a bunch of mollies & a CAE (& snails). Thinking about getting some gourami's- oh- & yoyo loaches if I can find any- to keep my snail population under control, LOL. Anyone ever have loaches & a CAE together? Wondering if they'll get along. My CAE leaves the other fish alone- so far- it's about 5 inches. TIA for any answers.

    CAE is Chinese Algae Eater, or so I've been told, LOL.

    Welcome to AC! And, yes, CAE is the common abbreviation for Chinese Algae Eater. There's also SAE for Siamese Algae Eater (Much harder to identify right, thought ;)).

    Anyway...the two of them should get along fine. The yo-yo's will also do wonders for your snails. In fact, most loaches will work just fine. I'd also recommend, if you have the room, to get at least three yo-yo loaches, as they have been quite social for me in the past. And, given the right conditions, they can live quite a long time!

    Another thing to consider...is cutting back on what you feed the tank. Snail infestations are usually indicators of over-feeding.

    HTH!

    Welcome to AC. Possibly a few less abbreviations will help. LOL

    You're coming in just in time to see the new look of the forum. It just changed this week and has much to offer.
