Re: NFC: Algae control

The Chinnese "Algae" Eater is a coolwater fish, actually. :)  Flying
Foxes/Siamese Algae Eater's will do allright in MOST cooler temperatures.
Some of the more hardie pleco's will also do allright.  I'm not so sure
about Ottos.
The CAE, btw, is probably the worse choice of algae eater, but... thats
another topic. :)
