    Default Cycle seems over...now to add

    Hi all!

    My fish in cycle seems to have finished on my 4 Gallon tank.

    Ammo - 0
    Nitrite - 0
    Nitrate - 5

    I currently have a nice male Betta named Blender in the tank, and would like to add a few more critters, possibly for clean up.

    The tank has a couple live plants in it right now, and filtration is good. (200 litres/hour)

    Here are a few ideas I had:

    1) - Betta and 2 or 3 male Endlers

    2) - Betta and a snail that won't hurt the plants

    3) - Betta and some Cherry Red Shrimp, +\-6

    4) - Betta & ??????

    I am open to suggestions if anyone has any.

    I know the tank is small, but it is all we have room for at this time so I want to make the best of it.

    I was thinking of adding some java fern or another plant if I go the shrimp route.

    I also ran across some pygmy Cory's that I thought may work, but I want something that will eat algae and left over food.

    Thanks for your help and suggestions!

    I will be looking to make my decision for next week some time, once I return from Thanksgiving in Boston.

    Cheers

    4 gallon is barely enough for the Betta. Do not add more fish. A few snails or shrimp only.

    Thanks Lady Hobbs

    I kind of figured that. Was just being optomistic, even though I have been reading a lot here for the last while.

    Any particular type of snail or shrimp?

    Cheers

    An apple snail or some cherry shrimp? I wonder tho if the Betta might eat the shrimp. Never had a betta.

    The Betta seems to have a really small mouth, so I don't think he would get one into it, unless he really worked at it.

    If they have young, then he may eat them though.

    THanks
