"I have found these little fish to be great for my tank. Some do get agressive when older but not all of them. I have one larger specimen (approx 5cm long) which although it doesnt clean much algae now, it pretty much leaves the rest of the community alone. The tank consists of Plattys, Glowlights, Neons, Black tetras, 1 peppermint bristlenose, Bronze & Sterbai Corys, Emerald Cats, plus three smaller Chinese Algae Eaters. this mix does work well as the smaller eaters keep the tank clean and they are more interested in chasing each other than the other fish. I definitely advise removing territorial fish but basically they are lovely to watch and do a good job in cleaning the tank. I have also found some of these fish do remain active in removing algae even when growing larger. Just keep in mind the fish you intend to keep with the algae eaters and seek some general advice but overall they are a great addition to a tank."
