    Default Attractive bottom feeder suggestions.


    0 Not allowed!
    First of all this will be a future addition. I am trying to find an attractive bottom feeder for my 12 gal tank. which will have 1 dwarf gourami and about 8 small schooling fish. The tank will be moderately planted with some driftwood
    as well.

    I really like the look of Kuhli loaches, but since they do best in large groups, this will probably not be a good option for this tank.

    Does anyone know of any other attractive small bottom feeders that would suit well to this tank?

    Akysis catfish stay small, and do fine either single or in groups.

    Pygmy corydoras or rabbit snails. The gourami may try to attack the snails if it's an evil gourami.

    What's the minimum number of these pygmys you should have?
    In the primer it says that they do best in numbers...also I have pretty hard water. Anyone else have hard water and pygmys?

    I would say 4 would be a good number. I've had single corys but they are happier in groups.

    Cories really should be kept in groups of six or more, and this really applies to pygmies because they are so small. I think that a group of 8 would be really happy in a 12 gallon.

    And as toddnbecka states, akysis vespa are pretty cool. I'm going to get some for my 10 gallon.
