Bottom Feeders - When?
With the build up brown algae etc in the tank, I'm thinking that it may be ready to add a small bottom feeder.
If so, which ones? I think I'd avoid a plec as the tank is only 2ft.
Tank is in its 6th week. Nitrogen cycle was complete about 2 weeks ago.
I would appreciate all comments guys
Is size the only thing putting you off plecs? There are varieties of plecs that stay small: ancistrus (bristlenose), putbull, queen arabesque etc.
Another recommendation would be a group of 4-6 cories.
You could also go for shrimp instead of fish as I hear that they are an excellent "clean-up crew".
My shrimp don't touch the brown diatom algae. My little bristelnoses love the stuff and they only get about 4 inches long.
Otos, love the tuff and stay small. BN Pleco stay small and love it also.
I keep red cherries and crystal red shrimp. Neither will eat it for me.
