For the clean up crew, I rely on...

Chinese Algae Eaters, Corie Cats, and Ghost Shrimp.

In My 55 Gal I have 3 CAE's, 6 Cories, and about 25 Ghost Shrimp.

In my 3 - 10 Gal and 2 - 10 Gal tanks I have 1 CAE, 3 Cories, and 5 Ghost Shrimp each.

Do you find the CAE's too aggressive? At my LFS they seem to fight with each other a lot.
I haven't had any problem with agression, YET

The 3 in my 55 Gal are the biggest, at about 3 1/2 inches, and they do chase each other around a little kida' like Zebra Danios do.
But there is lots of room and hiding places for them.

All the ones in my other tanks are about 2 inches and are alone species wise and don't bother any of their tank mates, as a matter of fact they all seem to hang around with the corie cats a lot for company.
