Sakura8, it kinda seems that way doesn't it? The eaters and the sucker fish are all very very small right now. And yes, plans have been made for when they grow larger. I've heard horror stories about how giant plecos have chased and trapped other fish in aquariums and ate them. :\ But right now they are all very little and two of the algae eaters are supposed to be in another tank. They were put in awhile ago after failed attempts at getting the water to clear up came about. They have since made it super clear.
The girls in the tank are all so very even tempered and mellow, they don't fight with each other and they even tolerate the occasional eater coming up to 'groom' them. They even mimic the eaters on the glass sometimes until they get bored. Very funny to watch.
There is a fair amount of plants and hiding spaces in the tank so the eaters and the sucker fish can be hidden most of the time. And the girls do their own thing, they go and do their own thing like play in the air bubbles, but they all come to the surface when you put your finger in the water, they actually like to be pet.
But back on track..
From what i've seen a few different types of school fish are dirty, similar to goldfish. I just thought that the mollies might be a good idea because they are so mellow. I've watched 'fruit' Tetras in pet stores and in my friends tank and they always seem to be instigators. And they seem to be fairly dirty. But if Kiwi's girls were aggressive and she really wanted some other fish in her tank her best bet would be a very nonaggressive even tempered fish of some sort.
