seeing as my pleco didnt last forever, I have decided to give an algae eater a go, wish it luck, cause if it gets gutted like that last pleco then its gonna hurt.
It was only 2.50 so there is no big loss anyhow

What king of P do you have with it... Serra...Pygos?

I believe the best bet is always a big Pleco (over 10")...sooner or later your algae eater will die...it´s his destiny!

You talking about Chinese algae eaters? Didn't work out when I tried it. They made for a nice soft bodied little morsel.

I`ve tried everything with my p`s as a cleaner. 12inch clarius catfish,4 plecs at 4inch- 10inch,rafael cats,pictus cats , crayfish and cory cats. When i tried these 1 caribe grabbed the cory and tried to swallow it , but the barbs on it`s back caught in the caribes mouth and i had to take the caribe out of the tank and rip the cory cat from inside it`s mouth using tweesers.I have now given up trying to get a cleaner as the outcome is always the same.
