I've heard flying fox are one of the few species that will eat beard algae.
I have two, and they seem to be active eaters - but its hard to ascribe
results to a specific fish because there are several ottos and a pleco
in there too.

CAE's will eventually get much larger, and I've heard that they get 
more aggressive as they get larger, but I've never actually seen it.
