The Chinese algae eater is commonly offered for sale in local pet shops but is probably not the best choice for most tanks. As juveniles Chinese Algae Eaters perform their job of eating algae with gusto but as they mature they may eat algae less and become very territorial. As they mature they may also start to affix themselves to the sides of larger flat bodied tank mates (such as Angelfish) and they will damage the scales of their victims.But just because these fish eat algae, doesn’t mean their diet doesn’t need to be supplemented. They should always be provided with a high-quality sinking pellet designed specifically for herbivore fish, and provided with a varied selection of lightly blanched vegetables. When choosing a sinking pellet, one of the best choices is . I’ve used this food with great success for many years, and algae eaters love them.Bristlenose Pleco – These fish are generally considered to be the best all-around algae eaters. Not only do they do well in most community fish tanks, but they can also adapt to a wide variety of water types. When you combine that with a suckermouth designed specifically to graze on algae, you have the perfect algae eater for most aquariums.Siamese Algae Eater – Often mistaken for the Chinese Algae eater (which is a terrible algae eater), or the false Siamese Algae Eater (another poor algae eater), these fish are among the best algae eaters for an aquarium – assuming you can find one of them to purchase. They tend to be rare in pet stores, and usually require a trip to a specialty fish store to find.While there are a myriad of ways to combat the substance, some of the best weapons against algae are biological weapons: fish! To preserve the balance inside your aqueous habitat, make sure to pick the best algae eaters that are not overly aggressive and will not outgrow your aquarium.The Siamese Algae Eater is another great algae eater. These fish are peaceful and gentle on live plants. They are between 4-6” fully grown. One of their best features is their constant appetite and willingness to eat more than just one type of algae. They are even willing to eat the awful Black Bearded Algae. Just the fact they are willing to go against this villain of the aquarium world solidifies their superhero status.
