Re: What Algae Eater Is Right For You? Look Inside!
There is no way any algae eater will keep up with a tank that heavily overstocked. The otos are probably spending more time trying to keep from getting killed by the Chinese Algae Eater than they are eating.
Algae eaters help those who help themselves. They don't clean. They eat what they need to survive, and nothing more. So if they aren't keeping up, you have to figure out what you are doing wrong, not what they are.
