Re: What Algae Eater Is Right For You? Look Inside!
Ok, if we say or agree that no tank needs an algae eater then might one assume that no tank should have algae? I do not have a real algae problem in my 10g with two Watt cfl running on a timer 10 on and 14 off. I have a half dozen plants that seem to be doing pretty well but I get a very light coating of green algae on the tank glass which I clean weekly. Gravel seems clean and plants are clean. btw, I do not have an algae eater but had thought to get one, most likely the bristle nose.
I do not, I mean, DO NOT overfeed and I am sort afraid that my two Cory's don't get enough. I love to watch one find a bloodworm that somehow made it to the bottom.
60g tall, all artificial plants, Rainbow tank; 55g for African Cichlids. 20g long for fry; 20g hex, 2 black Angels at my desk; 10g planted, with 50 Molly fry; 10 gal, 2x 13w cfl lightning, planted; 2g hex for "Buddy the Betta"; Wanting a 200g +, MTS getting bad.
