I had a Bristlenose in each of four 10G tanks and DUH! couldn't figure out 
why I had an algae problem in the fifth one.  I got myself another Bristlenose 
and voila! no more algae!  They're wonderful little guys - get to about 4 1/2".

Now back to that infamous unplanted (because the Silver Dollars eat every 
plant ever introduced, including hornwort) 29G.  I have one Bristlenose in there 
and algae is still a problem.  Suppose that if I put two more in there, they'd 
be able to keep it clean?
