Justin's got the Paraguay Darter Tetra, Parodon affinis, which EATS HAIR ALGAE! He's got video proof of his fishes yanking and eating the stuff as well as before and after shots. They look and behave much like SAEs but they are tetras and are about 2 inches long. See here: http://www.hippocampus-bildarchiv.de...er/s59515.html

Yeah, no doubt. His enthusiasm and dedication are great marketing tools; it's no wonder he sells out quickly! I even bought some and I don't even have hair algae for them to eat!
