[APD] Algae & Critters

Wow that's something new I've never heard of. Does the large amount plants keep toxic levels down? thanks again Vaughn
SAE's grow very large for a 20 gallon tank - too large actually, and  their value as algae eaters drops off as they get bigger, so I  wouldn't get those.  I would get about 6 Otocinclus, the Cherry  Shrimp and Amano Shrimp.  I have no experience with the snails so I  have opinion about them.  A well planted tank doesn't need to be  cycled, so there is no good reason to wait much longer to add the  livestock.VaughnOn Jan 8, 2007, at 6:30 PM, Wojciech J.
