    Default bottom feeder for my 12 gal Fluval Edge

    0 Not allowed!
    Got a 12 gal Fluval Edge since I have very little space since it was largest volume currently only 17"wide & 14.3"deep but 22" tall. I'm going to have my mild mannered male betta, 10 harlequin rasboras, & a zebra nerite. Does anyone know a bottom feeder that I can add to this small community tank?

    Honestly, I can't think of any fish that would fit the bill for a small tank like that. Even smaller cories need a good sized group because they school. Plecos of any kind would be too big, ottos need a group too. Maybe there's something I'm not thinking of.

    because corys school they need room on the bottom which I do not think a tank that size has. I also cannot think of a bottom feeder that is small enough to fit in that tank comfortably.

    Bottom feeders are not necessary. I was into this hobby for 5 years before ever having my first bottom feeder.

    Well, if nothing else, I will recommend shrimps if you really want some bottom feeders.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    Me too, Btw this may or may not still result in a well fed betta and a shrimpless tank.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
