No ADFs aren't bottom feeders.. you have to feed them just like you feed your fish. For a 6 gallon I would go with one mystery snail or one zebra or nerite snail. Since your tank isn't divided you don't want to get more than one bc they'll breed.

They do but if your doing your regular weekly water changes it shouldn't be a problem.

Actually, my ADFs are pretty much bottom feeders, although I trained them to come to the surface recently so that I don't have to reach down that far. :P

You can't fit Cory cats in a 6 gallon. You need at least 3 or 4 cory cats, so you'd be overstocking the tank. You'd need at least 10 gallons for cory cats.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2
