14 usgal Biocube suggestions
Well my plan to make my Biocube a puffer tank has fallen through. I lost my dwarf puffer on Friday. I found him when I cleaned on Sat. :( I had tons of plants in there and he didn't comeout when I fed on Fri. I did water changes Sat and tested the water on Sun. I decided to move my blue ram into this tank because the angels and pair of Bollivian rams were doing a lot of chasing.
The blue ram seems happy in the tank. What I am looking for are suggestions for companion fish. I may purchase a second blue ram but I am undecided as the lfs only has very small rams. If they grow out in the tank, I may be able to sex everyone and then get a m/f pair succesfully. I currently have 4 young guppies and 4 otos in the tank. The guppies can be moved to another tank but the otos are needed because the lights grow algae :)
I think I would like a school of some kind but the fish need to stay small (I was thinking possibly harliquin rasboras as I can get those at the lfs) as the tank is small. I can skip fish like corycats but are there any other bottom feeders that stay small and would get eaten. I think most shrimps might get eaten by the rams. Also smails aren't a good option as I had a gold snail in there and it kept climbing into the built in filter.
I am open to suggestions but am really looking for easy to find fish :)
