Siamese Algae Eater


SKU :0288

Siamese algae eaters, or Crossocheilus oblongus, are freshwater fish from the Cyprinidae family. This family contains carp too, which are closely related.
They originated from Southeast Asia, including Thailand and Malaysia, but now they’re bred across the world for the aquarium trade. The reason they’ve become so popular is that they’re one of the best algae eaters available. They move around a lot, so they cover the whole tank quickly.

While the movement helps with the algae, it keeps your tank active and interesting too. Lots of other algae eaters don’t move much (like nerite snails).

These fish are great for beginners, they make the job of keeping the tank clean much easier and their behavior is unlikely to be an issue. That being said, Siamese algae eaters produce waste just like any other fish. Overstocking can make your tank messier rather than cleaner.
