 Hi
 I  have  a  farm  with  a  well,  I  would  like  to  know  whether  there  are  any  fish  that  i  can  introduce  to  keep  the  well  water  clean.  Currently  there  is  no  fish.  The  well  is  about   30  feet  in  diameter  and   20  feet  deep.  I  have  seen  wells  in  other  farms  were  the  water  is  free  from  algae  and  the  water  is  so  clear  you  can  even  see  the  floor  of  the  well.Any  suggestions  is  useful.  Also  i  am  from  Chennai  so  any  shops  in  kolathur  were  the  suggested  fish  is  available  for  purchase  is  also  welcome.
 Thanks

 Fish  wont  keep  your  water  clean,  and  please  dont  add  any  glass  cleaner/pleco  fish  in  it.
 
 When  you  say  not  clean  it  doesnt  give  more  information  on  how  really  the  water  looks,  can  you  describe  it  bit  more  and  provide  pictures  if  any?

 You  can  add  any  pond  fish  that  is  native  to  the  area.  Small  barbs  and  Rasbora  work  well.  Even  a  few  killi  fish.  Don't  add  any  non  native  species.  The  reason  for  asking  you  to  add  native  species  is  that  in  such  a  large  well  they  will  live  off  what  ever  is  there.  You  will  not  have  to  feed  them  or  otherwise  put  any  effort  to  raise  or  maintain  them.

 Killies  and  small  barbs  are  good.  You  will  find  people  selling  feeder  fish  in  plastic  bags  in  Kolathur,  these  are  usually  local  caught  small  barbs  and  miscellaneous  other  fish.  Filter  and  make  sure  you  don't  end  up  introducing  plecos  and  tilapia  by  accident.

 These  are  sold  on  the  roadside  and  not  in  shops.  Local  guys  sitting  on  the  pavement  types.
 
 Also,  adding  fish  will  not  keep  the  well  clean,  they'll  just  munch  on  algae  and  ensure  there's  no  mosquito  breeding.
