Best Small Algea Eater?
Im looking for something special for my tank, something brutal on algea yet easy on plants, and preferably not ottos (Even though they are a possibility), im thinking a Pleco is a good way to go, its just i dont have a large enough tank for one that gets over 2-3 inches, im currently going to be removing from my 40 tall a Dwarf gourami, Peppered Corys (3), and possibly 2 neon tetras, in addition to the fish im not removing i have an Angel (Soon to be a second), 6 rummynose Tetras, 4 pada cory's and a panda garra (im going to add another two if the LFS i go to has them again) I have good filtration and change 30% a week, if possible im rethinking removing the Dwarf gourami but am 100% willing to remove him if necessary.
Filtration is a 40-50 gal HOB and another 10-20 Gal HOB. im thinking of replacing the 10-20 to a 20-30, or dumping HOB filters entirely and going the Canister route. Advice on this would be nice.
Also i have a large algea problem caused entirely by Natural light, the tank gets it for about 6-10 hours a day where it is.
