  1. Default clean up crew for 26g/100L??


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a 100L/26g tank with 16 neon tetra and 6 three-lined corys.
    I plan to have about 10 red cherry shrimp, a gold gourami, and maybe 3 female and one male endler's livebearer in there.
    Is does this stocking have enough of a clean up crew/algae control in it?
    If not, what are some good species that are suitable for my size tank and will eat a ton of the undesired substances in my tank??

    the shrimp are very good algae eaters and scavengers already. if they remain somewhat unmolested by the gourami and reproduce then they will form a strong clean up crew over time.

    IMO that tank is too small for a Gold Gourami -- maybe try a Dwarf Gourami instead?

    Did I say gold? I meant honey, sorry. Anyway ill sort that issue in another thread in the gourami section. What about my clean up crew?

    I mean your stocking sounds nice, but algae on itself is a problem fixed by you, not the fish.

    they still need other foods to survive and a healthy tank doesn't have an algae problem

    Oh a Honey Gourami would be absolutely fine.

    That is your responsibility. Animals kept for that purpose will not always eat what you want and where you want.
