Probably been mentioned elsewhere in this thread, but keep in mind SAEs will prefer any and ALL types of fish food over any type of algae. So much so, that if kept in a tank with slower eaters, the SAEs can get all the food. They're big time pigs. They are entertaining fish for sure in groups of 3 or more, but best kept in tanks larger than 55g with fish that are bigger piglets than them.

Thanks for the advice. My tank is probably not big enough for a Pleco or SAE (being a mere 10 gallons) and not mature enough being only 2 months old. So I will probably wait a little while before adding any more. I really want to get a larger tank. Of course that's, 'what they all say.'
