Isnt it Chinese Algae Eater..... kinda like Siamese Algae Eater ?

maybe i'm wrong i dunno lol
very different fish. Chinese algae eaters don't eat a lot of algae except as juveniles, are dangerous with flat bodied or slow moving fish (slime coat eaters), like current and get big - 20+cm big. Chinese algae eaters are one on my pet store peeves - lots of stores sell them when they're little but most don't post warnings about them.

Just updated the list with Claudia's suggestions.

I also added all of abbreviations/terms from the last two pages of this thread so the list is now up to date.
