Help with stocking bottom layer critters?
Hi All, I have recently remodeled my 10 gallon tank to be accomodating for hybrid endlers. I plan on getting 2 or 3 pairs of Adrian HDs Hybrid Tiger Endlers. But I am facing a delimma. I would like some bottom dwellers. I have researched a few different kinds. I love the look of the crystal reds, but they would not breed well in a p.h. of 7.8, which is what my water is. My water is about 150 ppm in hardness and between 80 and 120 in alkalinity. This is a planted tank, So I have ruled out a marmakoreb, which I was considering getting one. The substrate is sand, and I will be adding a piece or two of maylasian driftwood to this tank at some point. I'd really rather not get Ghost Shrimp again, so please help me out with this. I would prefer some kind of shrimp or crayfish Etc. that would stay on the bottom and be perfectly happy in this type of water. I would rather not get any loaches, cats, or any other fish as I want this tank to be Hybrid Tiger Endlers only. I have ruled out snails for the reasons, they munch on my living plants and don't tend to stay to the bottom the majority of the time.
Thanks in advance!
