Question bottom feeders

Is there ANY kind of algae eating bottom feed that could go with dwarf gourami's. I'm also getting anglefish, can any algae eating bottom feeders go with them?

How big is your tank? If it's ten gallons or less, snails eat algae, I think they should be fine with a gourami. Siamese Algae eaters are supposed to be very efficient at eating algae, and community tank safe (if you get one, make sure it's actually a Siamese and not Chinese algae eater), but they need a pretty good-size tank. Again, depending on tank size, you could get a small species of pleco.

If you get angelfish, you need at least 30 gallons. In 30 gallons I would recommend otocinclus, bristlenose pleco's, and small fancy plecos.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

No angelfish. I would recommend 4 otocinclus or small fancy plecos (bulldog, etc.....)

I think a single angelfish needs 20 gallons.

A single angelfish/pair needs at least 30 gallons. Add 10 for each additional angel.
