Hi. I am looking for some nice, colorful community tropical fish that I can give a full herbivore diet. Something that I can feed chopped up veggies, specialized vegetarian foods, ect.

My setup is:
5.5 gal tank
Topfin Filter (with tank)
Mini heater
Mini air pump w/ stone
Artificial plants.

Goldfish, Plecos and Snails all eat veggies but the only one that would work in that tank size is the snail.... I can't think of any fish suitable for a 5 gallon (which is pretty much only a Betta) that would be able to eat that diet. I'm sorry, maybe someone else knows of one?

Bump the tank size to a 20 long & you'll have a lot of small vegetarian plecs you can go with. Be aware they will need a bit of animal protein here & there, decaps are eggs, which may fit in your plan. If you're stuck with the 5 gallon you're stuck with snails.
