Otos and plecos and shrimp, oh my
Now that my tank is all set up and ready to finish cycling, I want to know if I could add a single oto or a bristlenose or clown pleco as the cleaning crew. Three of the five girls that are going into the sorority will have nothing to do with pellets, (not even with garlic juice!) so fallen flakes are an inevitability, and look especially ugly on the black sand substrate. If it's a no on the bottomfeeders, could I just add a multitude of ghost shrimp or red cherry shrimp?
EDIT: the tank is a ten-gallon, planted with abubias, ludwigia, and an amazon sword. I'm gonna get some driftwood at the next chance I have.
