From what I understand they are supposed to be pretty decent although not really sure on the algae claim. Might wanna PM revhtree, I believe he got some not too long ago from the same source.

AFAIK, be somewhat wary about their numbers as they can outcompete other aniamls for similar food resources. They reproduce quite rapidly in a well fed environemnt as they have no planktonic stage. Not necessary a bad thing if you have a market to sell them though.
