Hi ... ,
I want to remove my common plco because since it gets big ,doesn't work
well(it's better I say it's very lazy)and always attack to other fish-especially to my Black ghost-but I've problem about its supersede .
I want a/some fish that :
1- be peacful with my fish
Three bala sharks
a senegalus polypterys
a black ghost knifefish
2-It/they keep(s) my tank clean and remove algae-such as pleco but not it
--My tank is 300 Li and I have 8 Giant Higrophila--
3-This fish doesn't injure my plants

Do you know any suitable fish for my aquarium ?
Some of my friends recommend me "Rainbow shark and Hi-fin banded shark" . What's your opinion about them ?

Well, for us yanks, your tank is around 79G. It's not large enough for the bala sharks, so you may want to consider removing those. I understand being attached to them, though, because they're really pretty and sweet in their neuroses.

I'd skip the banded shark, and frankly, they shouldn't be available to the typical hobbyist. They grow to be QUITE large, and a person would need a HUGE tank to house them properly.

My other concern is the bichir. They like to leap out of tanks, and can turn aggressive toward tankmates. They fare their best in a species tank.

So you might want to decide what you like more, and get rid of everything else.
