Lennie Posted April 21 Share Posted April 21 (edited) Hey, So as the title says, are mollies actually good at eating algae? Especially hair algae? I’m starting to see slight growth of hair algae in one of my tanks. AND I HATE IT FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART :)))) So any slight growth should be destroyed from the beginning before it can slightly grow!! 😄 I have some rosy barbs in that tank and they do pick at algae from time to time. But I would love to increase the potential hairy type algae eaters in that tank. The tank meets molly parameters, 24C, 7gh, 13 kh, 7.5 ph. 33g/125 liters. I have 3 SAEs in my big tank and cannot get any juveniles and remove one again in the future to move them again, it would crowd too much. They have their own established dominance right now so I don’t wanna remove them from the big tank to be introduced back again later on. They grow pretty fast anyway, I’d rather have something works in long term. Also any other potential hair algae type eaters suggestions are welcomed. just a note: we don’t have amanos in my country since pandemic, and shrimps cannot make it in that tank no matter how densely planted it is. So shrimp are out of the plan. Edit: we also don’t have flagfish. I forgot to mention that one. Thanks everyone for the help, Edited April 21 by Lennie 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
