It depends on the size of your tank. How many Gallons is it?

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Any thing will do,but not algae eater.I tried it,his fins got ripped by the algae eater.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!

If I might make a suggestion .. If you get a snail, zebra nerites make awesome algae eaters and they won't spawn like crazy (they have male and female)..

Careful of ramshorn snails or pond snails, they don't need a mate to spawn (like the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park) ..

any old nerite would work, there are tons of awesome patterns actually! and if two nerites get put together and eggs do pop up, they wont hatch as they need brackish/salt water to hatch.

and nerites are really cute!

i like fish and piercings and yarn
i <3 snails

Don't get mystery snails. One missed egg clutch and you'll have a population boom.
