two clear a 75gal. of the long flowing green stuff in just a few days. They 
also eat duck weed. The bad part is the love to eat glossostigma and may nibble 
at a few others. The prows outweigh the cons IMHO. They may nip at long finned 
fish also. I've seen Mollies do an ok job too. I think the Sail Fin ones are 
better( I have'nt kept any for a while but I Think they nibbled at bule green 
algae also) than the Blacks. 
   Good Luck!
