Stonerollers of any origin are good community tank fish. Most of the ones
you'll find are about as big as your pointer finger; alpha males can get a
lot bigger, but are few in number. They'll eat about anything you offer them
although anatomically they're equipped as algae scrapers and digesters. If
you dissected one you'd see a very long, coiled intestine adapted to the
hard work of digesting algal cells.

Go for it, you'll be happy you did.
