Ok thank you.

Is there anything out there that is easy to feed, doesnt get big (can fit in a 10 gallon), cleans the tank and is ok with.... lets say tetras? Do shrimp clean tanks?

Thanks

yup thats an easy answer, ghost shrimp. They cost like 30 cents at petsmart/petco and my lfs sells really huge ones for 50 cents. They are cheap, and they do a great job at cleaning the tank of leftover food. They dont eat algae though, the amano shrimp eat algae, the ghost shrimp eat detritus.

Thanks, that sounds cool how many of these would go in a 10 gallon tank? (I would think 1, because if there is a lot, they wont get the right amount of food. Am I right on that one?) Or do they get there own food, I would think they just clean up after the other fish right?
Thanks

you could fit around 5-10 in there, there very small and there stomachs are about as big as a medium sized brine shrimp so they eat very little. You can actually see there stomach, if you think there not getting enough to eat (if there stomachs are not full 5-10 minutes after feeding your fish) you might need to place some flakes where they can get it and the fish cant
