  1. A less common and strikingly patterned relative of the popular Siamese Algae Eater, C. reticulatus originates from the streams and rivers of Southeast Asia but is now bred commercially for the aquarium trade. Like their close relatives, the Reticulated Siamese Algae Eater is an active, medium-sized social fish that feeds on a variety of common nuisance algae species in the aquarium. They will graze on diatom algae films on glass and decor as well as the difficult to eradicate black hair or black beard algae. Best kept in groups of 6 or more, they are live plant safe and hardy additions to most medium to large community aquariums.
