Biological Removal of Algae
Algae that grow within aquarium are the worst enemy of beautiful appearance of aquascape. Since there is a limit on manual removal of algae, it is also a good idea to utilize animals that feed on algae. Caridina japonica is a representative algae eater. How- ever, this shrimp does not eat some algae species and at the same time, an excessive amount of this shrimp added in the aquarium may cause damaged aquatic plants eaten by the shrimps. It is therefore advisable to add 5 to 10 shrimps at a time while observing the condition of the aquarium. Besides, other algae-eating animals such as Otocinclus sp. and Crossocheilus siamensis should also be added to the aquarium on top of Caridina japonica.
