    've had a 4" male bristlenose in my 50g for a while now. recently green algae had jsut been running rampant, half the tank was covered in it. i figured he's jsut not interested in it and picked up a clown pleco.

    two weeks later virtaully all the algae is gone. but its not the clown. the bristlenose is suddenly out all the time and snacking on it like crazy. no clue why.

    If you feed them and keep them really full they wont touch the algae as much unless they love a certain type... Try not to feed him algae wafers if there is algae in the tank... They will go at it!

    Coreys won't take care of algae. They're great for cleaning up fallen food on the bottom of the tank though!

    I just love my little oto's, they're little fella's but they have a voracious appetite!!! My tank is fantastic looking now and it was a real mess. At first I was afraid the bigger fish would harrass and eat them but they leave them alone. I have a 7" chinese algae eater in the same tank and he's so fat and lazy, he doesn't even bother to try to eat the algae at all.

    Bristle nose plecos are great algae eaters. They only get to about 5.5". They are slightly territorial. You just dont want to have too many bottom feeding fish in the tank with them.

    Otocinclus are also very good algae eaters though they are hard to keep during the first month of there arrival to the aquarium. They also need constant algae feeding. Make sure that the algae you have is not the hard kind that gets crusty and stuck onto everything without hard srubbing. These fish need to be kept in small schools of approximatley 6 or so and only get up to 2" each. Good Luck on finding the fish that you want!
