The algae eater looks like a common pleco. Those get huge, it WILL out grow your aquarium. They get like over 1 foot long.

How many inches is it? When it gets too big you can post it on the classifieds of this web site.

angeleyes - I don't think you should have to defend your tank inhabitants at this point, you can keep what you want in your tank. If you do have a clawed frog and you do have a common pleco, they may indeed cause problems in the tank in the future, but that's not what you asked about.

You have a pretty good load in the tank so gravel vacs and filter maintenence are going to be high priority in a tank such as yours. I hope your questions were answered, but post back if they weren't.

ya i know i have alot in my tank but i wasnt expecting all these mollie babies but you buy one mollie and you get 15,a great deal i wasnt expecting so soon. i bought my algea eater from pet supplies plus and they said it would be 5 inches so if it gets to be a foot i can find it a new home or maybe buy a bigger tank. I really think the frog is okay in my tank, she eats,plays,swims and i had it over a month.i havent lost any fish for two weeks. The only reason i lost the neons 3 weeks ago was due to swim bladder from the pet stores shipment. :|

You might have a dwarf species of algae eater, like a bristlenose or a rubberlip/rubbernose/bulldog pleco. They don't get to be but 4-5".
