Yes i agree - stay away from these so called Chinese algae eaters - they do a crappy job of eating algae and when they do get older they suck the slime off other fishes' body.soul-hugger wrote:It is probably a "Chinese Algae Eater." Though it is not a loach and it is not from China. They don't cause too many problems when they are young, but can get agressive when older. The problem is they can develop a taste for the slime coat of fish and suction themselves to the sides of the other fish. I have bought fish before that did not get along with my loaches, and I had to make the decision to take them back to the LFS. Most places are pretty good about this. Maybe someone who has kept these fish before will come along and give you some advice. If you have a camera, you could take some pics, but if not (I don't have one either) a description may help us to give a positive ID. In the meantime, I wouldn't worry about it!
