Recently, there has been a lot of algea blooming in William's tank. It's all over his favorite plant and the sponge in his filter.
So here's my question: What is the best algea eater that I could put in with him?
He is a laid-back type of fish. He only flairs at his mirror, and even then he doesn't try to attack the reflection.
He is in a 2.5 gallon and I know that may seem too small to put anything else in there, but I believe the filter can handle it. I'm prepared to do extra and larger water changes if necessary.
Even if you do not think I should put another fish (or shrimp or snail) in such a small tank with him, I would still like to know your opinion on which algea eater is the best.
I'm thinking a snail or shrimp, but I heard that snails create a lot of waste. I'd just have to deal with doing more water changes.
