The Siamese Algae Eater fish, also known by the scientific name Crossocheilus oblongus, is a small freshwater fish native to Southeast Asia. It is very popular in aquariums around the world due to its ability to effectively clean algae from aquarium walls and decor.

The Siamese Algae Eater fish typically measures between 5 and 10 cm in length. It has an elongated, slender body, with a dark brown color and a black stripe on its flanks that extends from nose to tail. Its mouth is shaped like a suction cup and allows it to attach firmly to surfaces.

This fish is a very effective algae cleaner, but it also needs a balanced diet including green vegetables and fish food. It is compatible with most other species of community aquarium fish, but it can become territorial toward other fish of its own species.

The Siamese Algae Eater fish is relatively easy to keep in captivity, but it requires an aquarium of at least 80 liters with adequate filtration to maintain good water quality. It is important to provide hiding places and sufficient space for the fish to move freely. Like all fish, it also needs clean water and good living conditions to stay healthy and thrive.
