Well, the consensus is that IF I find TRUE SAE they are good... Well can someone confirm if these are the REAL deal? Thanks for any feedback.

Aww

I can assure you they didn't get fat on the BBA I bought them to control

They are about 5 inches now.

I have a smaller one in another (pleco only) tank who took one of the pectoral fins off a dwarf loach that was about the same size as him. They had been good mates, hanging out and doing everything together, till one day the SAE snapped and started ferociously bullying the little loach. Poor loach has all the grace of a 3 legged dog now.

Yeah, I'm REALLY hoping mine eat bba but I'm most likely heavily wishful thinking based on others stories... Anyway, I found this side by side comparison of true vs false SAE Crossocheilus siamensis - True Siamese Algae Eater ... might help someone down the road. Thanks for everyones input.

Hmmmm, in a bad twist of events I think I came up with a deviation to the rules of "peaceful" fish... If they are small enough for a mouth the discus might just EAT them. I fed the discus their meals prior to the SAE arrival and during acclimation but they seem to be becoming discus food to the existing tank inhabitants.
