I just set up my first large aquarium and have the fish in temp 78 40 gallon tank. i want to get some kind of bottom feeder maybe a snail or something like that how long should i wait before getting one
Re: Bottomfeeder question
As far as snails, brigs would be my recommendation or some Malaysian Trumpet Snails. Cherry shrimps are also popular and cheaper than crystal red shrimps at least.
thanks ill look into it
Most shrimp are pretty good al cleaning up tanks. I can get glass shrimp here for about $0.20 so they're cheap also if one of your fish decide they look good for dinner! My cories are also lotsa fun to watch and sift the substrate pretty good.
i would go with a group of corydoras of some kind. 3-5 of them would give the lower strata of your tank some visual appeal. plus they are kinda cute when they "blink" at you.
If you have the room for 6 or more corydoras, they are much more active and entertaining in larger numbers. At only 3 they will be rather shy and sort of hang at the bottom only in my experiences. At 6 plus they will be all over the lower half of the tank and be quite boisterous.
