He currently eats hikari algae wafers, cichlid gold floating as well as sinking

Does eat any aufuchs growing on the pebbles though, don't have any plants in the tank to see whether he would clean the algae of plant leaves

In one month or so he has grown from 2.5" to close to 4"
They get quite big and quite fast
