 Am looking for a fish that eats thread algae, am told that ameca

 true and if so know of any places that does mail order? >>
Ed, Ameca will do so, but may be hard to find, otherwise incompatible with
other livestock. If it's only a smattering of algae, you might try a few
platies (Poecilia maculata or variatus)...  these are used for this purpose
even by some folks with ponds.
