I have a 30 gallon long tank that is just starting to show green algae. I was going to get a couple of bristlenose plecos but was warned and I quote, "plecos poop alot". I don't mind the extra poop really but if I'm going to have extra poop I'd rather it be cichlid poop since plecos though interesting, aren't really much to look at.
So should I just keep up water changes, clean the glass myself, and let the cichlids handle the rock or is there another algae eater that would perform and thrive in a tank this size? Thanks.
