Algae eater recommendations??
Ok. So I guess I should start by listing the details of my tank. It is a 20 gallon planted tank that will house my 9 females for a sorority, and two nerite snails. The nerites are doing great cleaning the non-plant surfaces, but since I just planted it and some of the plants have melted parts (you know, how they sort of die and then come back in the new environment) and the plant matter is now a stuck to the surfaces of the plants and looks like a mess.
I originally wanted to get an otto because they are supposedly really gentle on plants, but I guess they have to be kept in groups and I am worried about the bioload of the tank.
What do you think? Anyone keep just one otto? Any other tankmate suggestions for this task?
