What should I know about sucker fish?


Answer by  BrendaG (6111)

Sucker fish like hiding places and algae. They keep tank clean and you can supply food naturally if sun shines on tank daily, permitting algae to grow.

Sucker fish are great! They clean algae off the walls of your aquarium and off of plant leaves and other surface. If there isn't any algae, you should buy sinking food pellets to make sure they get enough nutrition. Also, some sucker fish are nocturnal, and may dig or stir around the gravel.
