Yeah I know, I'm not going to get many, may not get anything other than a catfish and algea eater....
In a tank that small the best tankmates I can suggest are otos or pygmy cories. Otos require a source of algae (as that's all they will eat) and in a newly cycled tank (IF it's cycled) otos wouldn't fare too well. In my experience Otos fare best in a more mature tank and even then sometimes they don't do well. They are pretty sensitive fish and require stable water parameters.
Thanks for the info, I will keep that in mind.
I'm really not sure if my tank is cycled yet, but kind of doubt it. I had it set up for 48 hours before adding Mushu.
And this past monday I did the first 1/4 water change.
I'm keeping a close eye on it and him to be sure he stays healthy, he's young and I want to have him as long as possible.
I have a question.....
Do you ever get all the food etc. out of the bottom of a tank without completely emptying it and starting over?
I know that's not good, and partial water changes are best, but when I was doing my water change it got the food stirred up and now the water is a bit cloudy. Last night he didn't eat any of his food, it all went to the gravel.
