    I am interested in keeping some of these for glass algae control (green dust algae). Would they do this work? Will they leave all my plants alone?

    Also i keep small botia loaches (chain and zebra loaches) - would they be safe from them?

    I can tell you from personal experience, that apples and botia striata aren't a good combination. I tried a few apples but found them dead after a couple of months oddly enough by the 'cave' where the botias spent most of their time!

    I wouldn't chance it myself.
