yes (some species). depends on the bowl size, too. check with your pet store about which species would be most appropriate
yes, i did it over 8 yrs ago, everyone gets along fine, all tropical with gold fish, and algae eater and i have sharks too. No problem, as long as everyone is fed no one becomes lunch.
The only algae eaters that are safe with goldfish are bristlenose plecos. Weather (dojo) loaches can also be placed with goldfish, but they are not comparable to a pleco for cleaning algae (though they do clean some).
NO, not usually.
it doesn't really matter what kind of algae eater you get for the tank.In my experience with goldfish I've found that plecos work well although they get very big and will need to be kept in a very large tank.
It depends, if your goldfish are smaller than your algae eater, and big enough to fit in it's mouth, then very much so. If the goldfish are small, but too big to fit into your algae eater's mouth, then he might just injure them. But your algae eater shouldn't be so small that your goldfish could eat it. The rule with fish that I always go by is, if it can fit into it's mouth, it will be eaten.
I do not know of any Algae eaters that can live in cold water . Goldfish are cold water fish. So unless you can find some species of cold water algae eater the answer is no they can not be kept together successfully.
If you are refering to the Chinese Algae Eater sucker, best not to put them in with goldfish as they might eat the slime from the Goldies body and cause scale loss and ulcers.
Because when a Algae Eater becomes fully grown it likes to eat the slime coat off the other fish. ( NOT all Algae eaters though) for example the Chinese Algae Eater WILL eat the slime coat off the other fish when it is fully grown.
yes algae eaters do eat dead fish because as i type this my algae eater is feasting on a dead goldfish!
Yes. The fighter is a top eater whilst the algae eater will spend more time on the bottom
I suppose so
Yes I doent see why not the alge eater should not eat the gold fish
No, it will eat the algae eater.
Yes goldfish do eat algae
you can put an algae eater in with any tropical fish, I even have a goldfish in with my tropical fish now for almost 8 years. Pet store say no but i beg to differ. 8 yrs going strong, gold fish, algae eater, angel fish, silver dollars. Some fish are more dominate over others. I have learned no matter what they are if they are put in the tank, all as new fish as the same time, they all get along. After one dies, then as time goes on a new one has to earn its peck so to speak, so new ones get picked on. I have an algae eater and a cat fish. all is good.
Yes. I myself have a coldwater Plec in with my goldfish/orandas. Just do your research first, as I'm not sure if they will survive in an outside pond.
i think the best is a albino algae eater is the best.
no,algae eater only eat algaewhy do u think their called algae eaters
You could put in more goldfish. You could also try some White Cloud Mountain Minnows. If you want a Algae eater then you could get one or two Chinese Algae eaters.
if an algae eater is dead than it will definitely not move anymore. The algae eater could also be alive and just resting. You can take a small stick and touch the algae eater to see if it will move.
Yes, if the water temperature is between 72 and 82 degrees. Other than that they would be fine.
No it wont it just have its eggs and still live but don't get an algae eater if do, get one because they will eat your fish but it only a Pecos algae eater they will eat your fish they don't move in the morning but they are active at night
The Pleco is of the Loricariidae family. The Chinese Algae Eater is of the Gyrinocheilidae family.
There is an animal that eats algae it's called and algae eater fish. One kind is called a Jerusalem algae eater.
All aquatic turtles eat fish, even if it's too big toeat.
