Customer: “Hello, we bought some algae eaters a while back, and they died after about two weeks. We bought some more and they did exactly the same after two weeks and we were just wondering what could have been wrong with them?”

Customer: “Nothing, we thought they ate the algae.”

Me: “They do, if there’s enough to go around.”

Customer: “Oh, dear. Well, they did keep the glass awfully clear.”
