Holy ****, just read this. It was an answer on yahoo answers for "bottom feeders for a ten gallon" I nearly fainted:


a pleco

they won't get that big in a 10 gallon and they do an EXCELLENT job. also, it isn't necesarry for them to have their own flake food. they are sort of leopard spotted and really cool looking. I have had quite a few and they live for a long time.

6 blackskirt tetras
2 bolivian rams
1 starlight bn pleco
3 mollies
1 keyhole cichlid
Why no danios? In that case, I'll probably just take out one Bolivian, and just do a female Bolivian, a keyhole, the black skirts, hopefully the danios, the pleco, and the cories. With 2 mollies of course. I forgot to mention that I will be over filtering quite a bit.... 75 gallon filter.

I just think the dianos are too active. It's not really about the tank capasity, but I think the danios might annoy the cichlids. Also, I persoanlly prefer to keep 1 school of fish in smaller tanks just because there is more emphasis and it looks nicer.

I like all the activity... And I think itd be good for the cichlids to have a bit of a target fish... Ya know, a fish that is fast enough to evade capture, but bothers the bigger fish just enough to keep the others out of harms way.
