    Hello! I would love a small algae eater that will go good in a 10 g planted aquarium with black sand substrate. I used Flourite Black Sand by Seachem. I know plecos get huge so I'll stay away from them. I heard that a couple of otocinculus might be good but I don't know if they'll do well...

    Hey guys, so long story short, I have zero skill with planting plants in good locations. My tank looks like something at a pet store where people pick their plants and take them home. I just got a bunch of stem plants from a guy on kijiji, and I've never actually planted plants that don't...
