"I originally had three CAEs under the idea that they would eat all of the algae in my cichlid tank (Jack Dempseys) and trusted my cichlids to not eat them because of their extreme lack of aggression. One did not make it, for unknown reasons after a few days of being home from the pet store, but the other became very healthy and active and would play together almost constantly. They shared a cave with each other and with either of my cichlids when they would let them. I transferred them into a tank of shubunkins and comets to rid that tank of some algae problems and they were about 4-5 inches at that point. I never saw them show any aggression to them or even to my african dwarf frog. If anything, they were scared to death of the frog. They were eventually killed by a parasite infection about a month ago. I do know that these were CAE and not SAE, but I guess I have had a problem getting actual aggressive fish. Even my cichlids that I have had showed very little aggression unless provoked."
