Siamese Algae Eater, right?

You know, everyone says they stop eating algae when they grow up. But in my experience, I've seen the adults happily munch away on my hair algae etc. 

In fact, I had one die on me a year or so ago and with it gone, my hair algae started coming back almost immediately.

Maybe they eat less algae when they are older? Or maybe they eat the same amount, just not proportional to their body size? Maybe we just don't see them eating it if there is less around and they are doing a good job? 

Maybe I'm completely wrong or crazy or just lucky?

Either way, I love SAEs, if you have a tank that's not too small for their adult bloated piggy sausage size.
