  • Siamese Algae Eater

    I'm thinking of getting one or a school not sure yet because I think they look great. However, my question would one get along with my colony of Otocinculus? I know SAE can get territorial with others of its own kind which the site recommends either get one or a school.

    I don't think a true SAE would. Mine has been pretty chill with everybody in the tank. Sometimes it'll tag along behind a fish or another for a bit but all mine seems to do is sit on the broad leaves of plants hanging out.

    Try it with the Otos and keep a close eye on them but an Oto is much smaller than a SAE's adult size is.

        My true SAE gets along just fine with my otos but I don't see my otos much. They prefer to sit in the plants lol. A CAE wouldn't get along with otos IMO.

          I'm going to check it out if it is a true SAE or a flying fox.

            SAEs are schooling fish. Try to get at least 3. They are very peaceful. I never see them doing anything but checking out the plants for algae; or front and center with my angels begging for food.

              Mine likes to try and follow the Kuhli loaches when they go on their crazy "swim in circles!" antics.

                my SAE could care less about the OTO in the tank, he is just as happy to be fat stupid and happy sitting on HIS amazon sword leaf lol.

                  If you think about it, what more could a fish want out of life?
