Re: [APD] Re: Algae Eating Fish
Many ancistrus will not appear to be very active fish, yet
still accomplish a lot. They tend to to be shy. And they
tend to move to a location, stop, work a bit, stop, move to
a new location, stop, etc. Lots of "idle" time.
Also, I have found many of them to be crepuscular if not
I find it best to judge their usefulness but the gradual
disappearance of algae from surfaces.
Hope that helps,
