I just don't understand the continual need to stock with those little Ancistrus type (Bristlenose Catfish) in African Mbuna-themed aquariums. Those little catfish will not clean the tank glass very well, and any algae growing on the rocks, etc. in the aquarium, will be appreciated by the Mbuna to nip at and graze on.
Plus, my own Mbuna had a rather nasty habit of just simply murdering any pleco's I attempted to place in with them.... :oops:

Bristlenose catfish will do best in peaceful & planted community tanks, where they are safe and can help in cleaning unwanted algae off of the live aquatic plants. ;)
