goldfish, snails, and shrimp-- oh my.
Do any of you have any wisdom to share or experience with keeping nerites, amanos, and/or fiddler crabs with fancy goldfish?
Here's my situation.
Right now my tank has only plants and no algae. Brand new. 56 gallons. Aquasoil substrate.
I have not yet gotten the goldfish.
My hypothesis us that if I introduce large shrimp and snails first, and then small goldfish, that would be the best way to go. However, since I have no algae yet, would the algae-eaters starve in a brand new tank?
Can any of these critters coexist with goldfish?
