Right, I've realised in my non-planted tank that algae is a problem and have found that having a BN and an apple snail. However, I expect that this is not enough as I get algae each week after water changes and gravel vac. Even when I reduce the amount of food I give the fish. In my re organise, I was planning on getting shrimp, but wondered what the pros and cons of each (shrimp and snail) and whats the best in a planted tank with Tiger Barbs, Danios and a baby Bristlenose? Any help would be appreciated.
