    But would it be a good idea to add a bristlenose catfish with existing 4 cory and 2 clown loach? I don't know much about them because I haven't seen them so I haven't researched them. Thankfully without live plants in the aquariums my algae problem is now minimal. When I first started I tried live plants and had algae like crazy because I don't have enough light for plants and they just kept dying. But several of my fish loved to nibble on the plants so I kept replacing them figuring what the heck, good food for fish! Do the bristlenose swim all over the tank and not hang at the bottom like the corys do? My clowns pretty much are all over all of the time, but generally feed on the bottom unless it is something yummy like bloodworms....then they come running to get their fair share!
    Otocinclus (sp? not sure) are small around 2" algae eaters that are very non aggressive. As far as I have seen mine haven't eaten anything but algae.

    do not know much about bristlenose catfish. otocinclus are non aggressive, in my book. i have them. clown loach will swimm, all over the tank but will grow to one foot in length!! in it home land, it is classed as the food fish. LIVE PLANTS DO NOT MAKE ALGAE!! if you was getting algae, it was because your tank was getting to much light. live plants will help to keep algea from growing!!

    Bristlenosed catsfich will move close to all substrates in the tank not just the bottom. IE also sides, on decorations etc.

    You are right Rollie...plants don't cause algae...but not enough light for said plants causing them to constantly die...which leads to pieces of rotting vegetation floating around all of the time certainly didn't help my tank! I have java fern in my 10 gallon which is doing fine, light is enough and although I still get small spots of algae...nothing like what I first saw in my 64 gallon.

    java fern and java moss do not need much light. water spite(floating) may grow in your tank to. you will always have abit of algae in your tank.
