Golden Chinese Algae Eater’s are an albino variant of the common Chinese Algae Eater, which have been selectively bred over the years to increase their availability within the hobby and enhance their coloration. Gold Algae Eater’s exhibit a striking goldish / yellow coloration that sets them apart from most other freshwater tropical aquarium fish commonly found within the hobby. They range in appearance from a light tan / yellow color, to a deeper goldish / yellow coloration depending on aquarium conditions, lighting and food sources. Their unique swimming style combined with their ability to perch on rocks, plants, driftwood, etc. make them entertaining to watch. If enough naturally occurring algae is not present within the aquarium, Golden Chinese Algae Eater’s can also be fed sinking algae wafers and pellets.

*Note: They will not eat Fish Poop
