a good cleanup crew
are there any snails or other inverts that would eat decaying plant matter and missed food but not living plants to go in a tank with peaceful livebearers

Bamboo shrimps and Malayan Trumpet Snails are detrivores.

Ghost shrimp, cheap, effective, eats leftover food but i dont think they eat decaying plant matter

And actually once you get some shrimp, you'll be surpirsed at how much you like them. I have three amano shrimp in my tank and a blue crayfish in my other tank and I love them all, they are entertaining and REALLY great at getting that junk on the bottom of tanks.

ive tried varios types of shrimp before the fish seen to take an unbridled passion in killing them as soon as there out the bag but in tanks containg ciclids i bought 10 ghosts (10 for 1 pound) and they seem to be doing well the dont clean up that well they seen to prefer to swim to the top and eat fish food
