wes.crockett Posted August 1, 2022 Share Posted August 1, 2022 Hi all, New to fishkeeping. I have a tank that has 4 tetras (2 black, 2 glow light) and 1 male Betta. I have a few live plants and a few decorations. For algae control, I have a single Assassin snail who isn't doing a whole lot. I have a fairly over sized air stone and use a over-the-back filter that seems to be fairly good overall for the 10 gallon tank its on. I really want to/need to get an algae eater as the decorations and plants are starting to form layers. I would really like something like a Hillstream Loach which, as we know, would probably be fine in the tank parameters, but I'm just not sure about being too overstocked. Other options would be either Amano or Cherry Shrimp. I like the idea of the Cherry Shrimp breeding, but, I don't want to get too many, though the betta may help with that too. Final option may be some sort of Cory? What would you go with in this case? Reddit, i'm sure, would say that I'm already a murderer for having any fish in a 10 gallon tank ( /s there, but they are pretty assertive) but many of the videos from AQ Co-op and others seem to be a bit more lenient for fish/gallon on micro tanks.
