I don't know about the flying fox, but get rid of the Chinese algae eaters
as soon as you can. In my single experience with them, when babies they seem
to nibble on algae, but being small, are not effective. Then they grow a little
and become nasty. Really nasty. If I didn't remove them from my tank they
would eventually kill my catfish, and maybe others.
