Any fishkeepers here? Saltwater or freshwater

I'm looking at starting up a saltwater tank. Is there a good fish store in the KC area without driving out to Lawrence?

Cleaner, yes.

Algae eater? No. Actually not at all.

Plecos and other foragers (I like Corydoras catfish because they stay small) will eat food that falls to the bottom and will clean up some of the detritus in tanks, but they don't eat algae.

If you want true algae eaters, the Otocinclus catfish is very good at eating green hair algae, as long as you get them before the algae gets established. They eat the new growth, so if you get them early, the algae never gets a foothold. Siamese algae eaters and their cousins the flying fox are good at removing black and beard algae too.

In defense of the pleco, they can reduce the amount of algae you have because the stuff they eat would eventually decay, leading to nitrate buildup and the eventual growth of algae. But their effect is indirect.

yup, you're right, dude! this is true and right. my bad. and yes, the cory cats do a great job of eating algae. it's been a few years since i had any of those fish.
now i'm getting the itch to restart my tank(s).

This thread really makes me want to get an aquarium up and running again. Had a 55G mbuna tank for a number of years that I really enjoyed, but eventually let it go after I lost a bunch of fish due to a combo of neglect and disease. I always wanted something bigger, anyway - a 90 or 125. Maybe after I move in the spring, I'll dive back in.

I always wanted to get some Ps Demasoni, but they don't play well with others. I thought a Demasoni and Yellow Lab tank would be pretty cool, but also wanted more variety. Wish those things weren't so aggressive.

I had a pair of Ps Acei breed in my tank last time, which was pretty cool.

I had a trio of Synodontus Petricola, which were awesome little cats. They would cruise around the tank together, and were awesome looking fish. Would probably get some more of those, were I to do it again...

right before i let my tank go the wayside, i'd almost talked myself into starting up another tank, probably +size of 55 gallons--making it exclusively for cichlids. that's probably the route i'll go when i start back up. little more expensive fish (esp with the more colored varieties). but they're just so lively. good luck to you, friend.

Stop right now. You're making me want to cruse CL for tanks. I had some awesome wild caught petricola that died from floor polish fumes.

So, is there a market to get rid of an oversized plecosaurus? I'm guessing this one is 8-10"

If by market you mean you could pay someone to take it off your hands, then yes.

Not really, (at least not in Omaha). I placed mine on Craigslist for $10 and the only guy that was interested wanted him for free. I told him to get bent and deleted my ad. From what I understand, some fish stores will take them and may or may not give you a store credit.
