Siamese Algae eaters is it ok to just get one? What to Feed?

I would prefer to just buy one to leave extra gallons in my sorority tank. However in observing them they do seem to hang out together. There will be corries in the tank also. The NPT tank will be new so no algae yet. There will be snails I think I read somewhere they also hunt snails. Should I just supplement with algae wafers? What should I feed? Can I buy just one SAE?

This source (as well as some others) says they can get 6", should be housed in a minimum of a 30g (I don't remember your tank size) & are omnivores; they need a variety of foods. They can live solo, if there is a pair they can become territorial.

Ok well the females will be territorial enough so one is good! I have a 29 gallon so I will be fudging that a little but I suppose if it ever becomes an issue I will just move him to a bigger tank. Sooner or later I will have a bigger tank.
