Siamese Algae Eaters
Siamese Algae Eater (SAE)
YES, These are the real McCoys that are NOT in your typical pet shop.
Size: up to 3" to 4" in 3 years. Typical lifespan: 5 years.
Food: Green Hair or Filamentous Algae, Black Brush Algae, supplement with New Life Spectrum "Community Formula" or "H20 Stable Wafers" found at Fish Foods
Good rule of thumb for stocking are 1 per 5 to 20 gallons, your choice since these are a schooling fish and will do much better if kept in a colony. We should know, we grow these. There is some conflicting stocking advice out there. Not uncommon for some folks to have 40 or more in a 100 gallon tank, or just 5 in 100 gallons. Beautiful fish to watch. When they've got all of your algae under control, they will need to be fed a good supplemental pellet food like the H20 Stable Wafers, but don't overfeed them or you'll turn them into fat lazy fish. Let them do what you hired them to do, be your janitor. Feed them about 1 or 2 times per WEEK in a naturally planted aquarium. These fish are very sweet, and not aggressive by any means.
