View Full Version : Bottom feeders?

01-05-2008, 08:13 AM
I am in need of some bottom feeders. I have a 75g w/ Mbunas and 2 Synodontis Catfish. The cats seem to only clean the bottoms of rocks and I am looking for few bottom feeders for janitoral services. Any ideas?

I've had great luck with my bristle nose pleco's. They keep the tank fairly clean and are rarely seen. In another tank I have a couple of clown loaches ans although they don't clean the algae they make darn sure there's no left over food. Either way though I still do have to do my weekly vaccuming to clean up after everyone.

Thanks Larry, I will try those fish. I still plan on my weekly water changes..(that is my Friday night fun) I just wanted a little help in the cleaning department. :)
