Regardless, I think eventually the scrubber would win unless you were using massive ammounts of ferts.
If you go to goldfish or discus forums you will find thousands of post of people who were surprised when the BN plecos they had for years suddenly started attacking their fish. Sometimes you get away with it, sometimes you don't. People theorize as to why, but if you read enough posts you begin to see that it's a crap shoot.

Ver. 1.0 80 gallon dirt goldfish tank (defunct)

Ver. 2.0 bare bottom same tank another approach (defunct)

Ver. 3.0 Pool filter sand same tank now

Farming Algae

Goldfish are among the worst fish for beginners.
