Brackish bottom feeders

I'm setting up a potential brackish 55g tank. So far I'm doing black sailfin mollies and fancy guppies. What good bottom feeders are there for brackish?


Keep calm and drum on

As long as it's comparable with the fish I have id try it. So far it's 4-5 mollies and 8 fancy guppies nothing else yet.

I believe they like groups so like 2-3 and they don't get very big... I'll double check...

EDIT: about 3.5 inches max.

Sounds perfect for the 55. Based on looks and coloration I'm going to guess they're a night dweller that likes plants and caves to hide in?

I would do plenty of research on plants. Many plants can't tolerate the salinity of brackish.
