I would avoid this fish in a planted or non-planted tank at all costs. Their algae eating stops within the first year or so, and as stated they get nasty with other fish, large and aren't a very pretty fish to look at.

You'd be better off with Oto's or true SAE's if you're looking for something to help with the algae. :)

LOL! At least your wife will step foot in a fish store and buy stuff for you. ;-)

It depends how big/old it is now, but they usually taper off in the algae eating dept. in less than a year.
