I've noticed the same thing. I have had them off and on for about a
year or two and have never had an algae problem with a tank they
were in. I found more of them about 1 month ago and bought a total
of 9 to put in two tanks which constantly have a hair algae problem.
I was constantly cleaning them. These fish cleaned it up on it two
days. The tanks look good now.
The first set I had would eat flake food but these I have now don't
like it. I am feeding them zucchini and trying cucumbers on them.
They nibble on the duckweed and keep the hair algae in check. I
like the way they look, their colors are nice and they are useful.
Great little fish, in my opinion.
