    You might be better off returning the chinese algae eaters. They get fairly large (6" - 8") and as adults they can be quite aggressive.

    If you returned them you would have enough room to add 2 more rosey barbs, 1 more cory, and an angel.

    Hello Bruce, I had not seen this forum previously and would be happy to help. If you add 1 or 2 more rosies and cories that would not be adding to many bottom feeders. ALthough I would reccomend returning the CAE's (chinese algae eaters) because they can grow to be up to 8 inches, so I would return them add the rosies and cories and maybe squeeze in that angel but you would have to ask chelle for sure. Hope everything goes well Bruce!! -tl

    My tank is cycled

    Hooray! My nitrite reading this morning was ZERO. My tank has finally cycled. I'm going to see about returning the Chinese Algea Eaters and stocking a couple more Roseys and another Cory...then add the Angel Fish that Mike (my 5 year old son) wants. I'm also going to go in the direction of the HOB Filter. Thanks everyone for your help and support!

    Congrats! Just watch for a mini cycle when you add more fish. But if you remove the CAE's at the same time you add the new fish, you probably won't even see a mini cycle.
