    I have a 75 gallon that I am going to move my 20 or so 1" Ikolas into shortly, I know that Tropheus love eating algae off of rocks, but does anyone have any suggestions on a pleco to help keep the algae off of the glass. I have used bristlenoses before, but I am looking for something different. Water is hard, no wood in tank, just rocks...

    No pleco will clean only the glass....

    Also, most to all will appreciate some wood in the tank.
