I have had one in my 10 gallon for 1+ year and he hasn't grown a whole lot, but they do get territorial. I call him the "grandpa" because when I put in a algae wafer all the fish try to pick at it, but he chases them off like "get off my lawn" . I know he shouldn't be in such a small tank and I wish I researched more about the fish when I got them. I'll be giving him away soon. This fish does an excellent job of keeping algae to a minimum although I think I've seen him nibbling on some plants...

I think I'm gonna have a hard time keeping enough algae in the tank for him to eat. I'm gonna have to give him algae tabs. He eats nonstop
