St_Marcus Posted April 5 Share Posted April 5 First of all, I hope this is the right place for this question. Hi, So, I've got these two pea puffers in a plastic container (it's part of a larger experimental setup, that's why it's a plastic container). I got them so they can process my excess snails, which do alright. And also because they're just the most adorable, personable little fish I know. Now, since the puffers eat the snails, I've got nothing to eat the green muck from the glass (actually the plastic). It's this really delicious tender green muck that I know snails would go crazy for. So, I was thinking to myself: "what about a hillstream loach"? They're high on my list of fish I want to try someday, and I bet they would make short work of the green muck. The only thing I wonder, is whether it would get along with the puffers. I think it should be alright. Right? I do have more plastic containers, which house the rice fish I bred last summer. So, I do have backup "tanks". But, those tanks have plenty of snails and therefore no muck. So, placing the loach in one of those containers, kind of defeats the purpose of getting one in the first place. What are your ideas about housing a hillstream loach with pea puffers? Yay or nay? (I am also open to other ideas. Also, I've added two pictures. The first is of the green muck (lower half of the container) and the second is to show off more puffer.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
