Algae eater for goldfish tank?

Recommended Posts

What's a good algae eater for my goldfish tank? I have large goldfish. 6"-11" i want something to clean the back part of the tank. Thanks.

Nerite snails and bristlenose plecos are both compatible. They only eat certain algae though. Relying on a fish or snail to clean algae is not a guaranteed thing. How big is the tank it is going into?

I've had much better results with Bristlenoses than with Nerites.

I have a Bristlenose pleco that keeps the algae, especially diatoms, at bay.

Yes, Ancistrus (the bristle nose) would be my vote as well. Very peaceful, fairly effective.
