RE: Re: [APD] RE: thread algae
Yeah I had to separate them into a smaller tank after they did their
job. I just stuck a bunch of the plants they came with in a 10 gallon
tank and I never feed em by them selves. It seems like a little stable
eco-system. It's been 7 months and no artificial food. The plants they
sent with them grow like weeds. BTW the reason I separated them was
because they would munch on the guppy fins. I call them my hair algae
cleanup crew:) Although I haven't had any since.
Just cross your fingers :-\ . Sometimes those fish will
annihilate more than algae -- plants, shrimp, other fish.
Temperment seems to very widley from fish to fish.
