Otocinclus affinis

Description
Small algae eater which mostly get active at the end of the day. 

My experiences
This fish haven't given me any problems in my aquarium. Although the only thing this fish eats in my aquarium is algae it can't beat fishes like Epalzeorhynchus sp., Epalzeorhynchus siamensis and Helostoma temminckii at this. The benefit of this fish is that because of it's small size it can also be kept in small aquariums.
