They are amazing algae destroyers. I put 6 in my 36 gal tank and they ran out of algae pretty quickly.

What I didn't knew was that they grow pretty fast and, uhm, big. If your significant other doesn't like them when they are small, (s)he will get creeped out some more once they grow to full size.
