They won't be small enough to fit through, but if they get too close the pull might be too much? I imagine I'm heavily underestimating their strength but it's food for thought :)
How many should I get?
Shrimp would be your best option for bottom feeders they eat dead plant matter, uneaten food, and algae. Very cool to watch them doing their thing. I have BN pleco's in both big tanks but I never see them, like ever.
