|New 55 gallon|
Just got a new 55 gallon tank and was curious about stocking some bottom feeders to help maintain it a bit. In my experience plecos get huge and create messes. Would corys, or loaches, or maybe even shrimp be a better call? The tank has all the equipment it needs to be set up I just want to get my battle plan established. I am currently leaning towards a community tank that is lightly/medium stocked with fish. I hope to make the tank hardy and stable.

In a 55G tank, you would just be providing an expensive
snack for any fish much more than an inch or larger.
Corys might be a great idea. A shoal of 6 or 7 would keep
the bottom levels very active. I, would stick with all
of the same type and not mix them. Eventually they would
mate, and you don't want have them mixed.

Alright, thanks. Do you think the Corys would have trouble with Angel fish?
