greetings leo;

without any pictures or description, i don't think many people will be in a position of being able to asist you with you're issue, though, if you have a problem with algae i can recommend the SAE (siamese algae eater), although, please make sure you don't purchase a Flying Fox, as stores mislable this. for how to identify the SAE, visit Crossocheilus siamensis - The Free Freshwater and Saltwater Aquarium Encyclopedia Anyone Can Edit - The Aquarium Wiki

sincerely;
nrk.
