Well I'll get rid of him soon, I have Three rosy reds , two small feeder gold fish, and a glass catfish also... they are doing great but I was worried about the Chinese algae Easter being a bully.

Can I ask what size tank you have? Feeder goldfish are generally comets or commons and so need a large tank or pond. Glass catfish really need to be in a school as big as your tank can handle, and the Chinese algae eater will grow up to a foot, generally stop eating algae and possibly start attacking your other fish.

10 gallon,i own a 20 but don't use it, im going to get 2 more glass catfish but not more, and the goldfish are tiny little dude, they're just feeder fish, 28 cents. said they get up to like 3 inches? lol, idk, they ALSO sold commets and common, so i don't think these are either, they were just called small goldfish lol.
oh and im getting rid of the algea eater.... don't know what im going to do yet though...

There's unfortunately no such thing as a 'small' goldfish. Those are stunted goldfish whose lifespan and health are detrimentally impacted on by being kept in small tanks.

Most of the goldfish I have seen sold as feeders are commons/comets and these are supposed to grow up to a foot long. Even a fancy goldfish is too big for a 10 gallon tank.

Your glass catfish also get up to around 10cm so need something 20 gallons and up.

Did someone advise you to stock your 10 gallon this way? It just seems very hodge podge, as the stock you currently have aren't compatible with your tank size or their tankmates.

those feeder gold fish can potentially grow to 12 inches :3
then they will eat everything XD
rehome them to a pond! it will save you some headache further down the road :D

if you really want a pleco or a sucker fish I would recommend rubber nose/bull dog plecos, these grow to about 4.5in :3

Ohhh but neons are SUPER sensitive so make sure that your tank is already cycled.
