I may have to start supplementing them because I seriously cannot find anymore brown algae lol. Crazy how fast they cleaned house seriously. I got 6 SAE's and two Ottos. All that was needed for my 60 gallon

What would you feed them if you had no algae? Do algae wafers work for them?

Mine love the Hikari Sinking Wafers for Omnivores Orange trim has a Clown Loach on the package. They eat everything, I also feed Hikari Seaweed Extreme marketed as a SW food but the stuff is enjoyed by my Dwarf shrimp to pretty much all other inhabitants FW and SW.
