Feed less so there is no uneaten food (ever).

For algae, try a bristlenose pleco. But don't add a single fish...wait until you are ready to add 3 or more.

Nope. Even bristlenose has only 75% success rate.

75% of them go strong. There tend to be casualties when they are first introduced to cichlids. Some seem to be just not savvy enough at first to hide when the cichlids become too interested in their eyes and bristles.

The pleco is not native to the African Rift lakes. The tank conditions are not ideal for them, most plecos do better in a tank tailored to their needs.

Gotcha, I guess I'm part of the 75%, my pleco does his thing and nobody pays him any mind.
