We have 2 albino corys and they are great. They have great dispositions, they mind their own business, and are quite fun to watch. The Albino have an interesting look with their white/pink body and pink eyes. They like to be kept in a group if possible, but I have 2 and they seem very happy and active regardless.

I've heard that shrimp are also great bottom feeders, but mine is more busy with algae than the food.


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!

different shrimp eat different stuff, the very popular ghost shrimp eats leftover food from the fish, the less popular amano shrimp eats algae. Shrimp are the best cleaners since they are cheap and remain relativly small, plus you dont need to feed them, the food that the fish miss is good enough for them
