[APD] Re: (South) American algae eaters

Richard asked:
Hey Dave, saw your tank, 


nice and very much alive , I am trying to do American & S.American species 
only. Can you suggest any SAmerican algae eaters ? 


  Richard, you could go with the American Flag Fish (AFF) - it eats most 
filamentous algaes.  Also a lot of the S. American Plecos (ie. Ancistrus sp.) 
do quite well at taking care of the spot algaes.  Otos are also part of the 
Pleco family, and I think they also come from S.A. (could be wrong here).  I 
think Molly's are also native to Central America - they do OK with algae, too.

Hope this helps.
