    Hey TASA Community,

    Just wanted to share this little video I compiled of my latest tank addition - Mr Siamese Algae Eater (Don't actually know if it's a male, just like the name :tt2:).
    Here is the link:

    I've only ever had an amazing experience with these guys! In the video, you can see him eating away any the brown algae on my plants!

    I got him yesterday (30/06/2020), he was quite skinny and is starting to fill out already! No doubt he's been hard at work.

    I've had the Siamese algae eaters once before and found they got a bit lazy in their adolescent years however are super at cleaning every surface when young.

    Anyone else enjoy these guys? Have any cool experiences or stories?

    They are very cool fish!
    I have 2, and they're quite entertaining to watch.
    I have noticed mine are very timid, especially when I'm sitting in front of the tank... And I can't figure out why they're like that.. Do you find your previous ones were also a bit timid?
