Hypancistrus are awesome fish, but definitely do not qualify as workers in a tank. They are more like beauty queens- very pretty, with a tendency to be shy, and of course, they prefer meatier foods....

What is your tank temp at? Bettas are happiest in high tropical temps- around 78-80. Cooler water can make them lethargic, as can very low light. What are you feeding? You can try tempting him with...

Absolutely. There are lots of nice, smaller cichlids that won't predate on that size of schooling fish- rams and apistogramma love the soft acidic water that neons come from. I'm also a huge fan of a...
