Hey there, looking for advice on what to get (type and care) for my 60g. It has 6 large fish, 5 (5 to 7 inch) Tin Foils and 1 (6 inch) Comet. All years old and well established. Anyway, I'd like to put something in to help keep it clean and a little cool never hurts. Now Plecos can be really neat but I've never had much luck with them. Though admittedly, I now know I starved them. Ummm, I was a kid. Tank was too small then. Didn't feed them right. What did I know. Snails. Ummm, they're OK. Never had much luck there either. Probably a feeding issue as well. Too many snails, not enough tank and I never fed them either. Although, I had about a zillion Malaysians for years in my old 20g and I never fed them. They did the coolest migration thing. They would run (Ha, snails running) travel in continuous herds across the tank. Very neat. Had them for years. Wouldn't mind that again but my fish just eat them little guys so...
Also, what do you think about the average snail you buy at the LFS
? OK or maybe not long lived anyway? Just wondering.
So any hoo, Suggestions? Appreciate your input.
