I've got a pair of German Blue Rams that I'm planning to move into a 20 gallon long tank soon, and I'm trying to figure out what kind of cleaning crew I can put in there with them that can survive 82-85°F water temps. Unfortunately, my favorite cleaners (Amano shrimp and Nerite snails) max out at 78-80°F. I've got a "naturally occurring" population of rams horn snails in all my tanks, and while they aren't my favorite they seem to do seem to be able to withstand the lower oxygen levels of warm water thanks to being air-breathers. Do you have any recommendations for building warm water cleaning crew?
I've had a tank running for a few months now with some plants , snails , and fish. once I get a good ammount of algea I really want to get some shrimp ! I've done a lot of research but there's so many different kinds. my only requirement is any shrimp that could live in warmer water temperatures. I would really appreciate any recommendations !
