One fish two fish......


......I gots a new fish. His name is Scrubby Dubbydoodle (Scrub for short.. I wanted to name him Hoover or Dyson..and Electrolux was just too much name for such a wee fishy. Scrub stuck.) and I will love him and not pet him and let him eat all the algae he wants with his freaky little sucker mouth.
He is hard at work here, sucking the glass of the aquarium to the left of the flash glare. He works the aquarium's nightshift so the lights are off while he does his thing.

We have a similar algea eater. He has been given the title of UG, short of Ugly. You'll never guess which five year old thought up that one.

Is he a catfish?

Yeah, he's a type of tropical catfish called Plecostomus. We always just called them algae eaters. He can grow up to 18 inches given the space. Very common in the shops and handy to have.
