I know this sounds stupid but what is the difference in plecos and alge eaters? Dont alge eaters eat alge and plecos eat everything? And what kind is better to live with convicts? I was thinking a bristlenose or something. Thanks for your input.

Most tend to be algae eaters. There are exceptions of course, so require wood in their diet and some require a more meaty diet. A bristlenose would be fine with your convicts.

Bristlenoses IMO are the best cleaners for a cichlid tank. They don't get too huge, and can consume huge amounts of algae in very little time.

How much do bristlenoses cost?
