My Phantom Tetra's won't eat flake food until they are sure no bloodworms or Brine shrimp are going in the tank. It's really funny.

Algae Eater Question

I just bought 2- 2" Chinese Algae Eaters for my 37G aquarium but I don't have any Algae yet. I'm just not sure how often I should toss a Algae wafer in. Anyone know how much they need to eat?
