they might if you give them a bad review and stop buying from them.
Husband bought them, told him they would be smaller, he didn't believe me.




They're eating and already watching me walk around.

Fat & proud of themselves.

Several guppies are hiding, started catching them & putting them in the breeder net. A tiny mesh box.

just thought they were vegetarians/algae eaters. :) interesting. :)
BTW
Very few aquarium fish will truly cleanup algae. It's mostly a gimmick for lazy people & to sell more fish. They may nibble on it here n there, but will never clean for you. Maybe if starved, but otherwise, nope.

in the reef tank it was snails, cleaner crabs, starfish and few of the fish species would clean some of it up, but the reef tanks had to be kept very nutrient poor anyways so not much could over grow the corals/coraline algaes.

for the freshwater tanks there were a few algae eaters along with snails and then a once in a while scrub on the side of the tank. it wasn't too bad.
