Need An Algae Eating Critter!
I am in school right now and up to my neck in school work, I can't deal with this algae bloom right now and it's driving me nuts! I clean what I can every Friday but it's just getting worse and looks unsightly. It's the bright green algae and I have been told it is not "bad" but I don't like it. I have a 10 gallon NPT, temp is at a consistent 80 degrees. If I had time to clean the tank every 2-3 days I could knock out this algae problem but I just don't and I do not want to pour chemicals into my water that may harm my betta. I have the one betta at the moment and don't really want to add anymore fish, I think most algae eating fish prefer to live in schools and get too big for a 10 gallon anyways. I am in a dorm and they don't allow snails but I have never had someone come in and meticulously inspect my tank but just to be safe I would like a snail that is fairly discreet and inconspicuous. Also what else do they eat? A friend of mine had a snail and it died, I really don't want to kill my snail lol
