Bottom Feeders/Cleaners For Nano Tank
I'm looking for a good omnivorous bottom feeder to handle the detritus and left-overs in my 10 gallon tank. I bought about 20 cherry shrimp for this purpose, but sadly, my Dwarf Gourami has reduced their numbers considerably (don't worry- the survivors are going to my boyfriend's 3 gallon tank!)
Current tank residents are:
1 dwarf gourami (A+ meanie)
5 porkchop rasboras
2 otocinclus catfish
I'm shying away from snails (too much poop, too much overpopulation) and dwarf cories (inappropriate substrate) but I was wondering if anyone had some alternatives. I've heard Amano Shrimp as a recommendation, but I'm worried about them being too young and small as well. Maybe I should just add more cherry shrimp until they are so numerous that the gourami could never eat them all?
Thanks so much for your help, you guys! Lurking on this forum has been extremely helpful as I set up my tank.
