"We bought a pair of young adult snowflake bristlenose catfish (hoplygenys) last year and they've performed an amazing job of keeping our 4' community tank totally algae free - much better than the "algae eating shrimps" managed alone. We have our lighting on a timer giving 12 hours of light per day. Both the male and female prefer to feed at night and are very shy, the slightest movement sends them diving for cover! While we were away over Christmas they've had a good time, as we came back to about a dozen babies busily scrubbing the gravel :-) The young have no fear of light or movement. Great site by the way, lots of useful info. I didn't know about feeding them celery/cucumber so thanks for that :)"
