I need something that will eat food pellets that have fallen to the bottom. Once I finish off this fish food, I'm buying something else. The pellets I have now almost immediately sink to the bottom..creating quite a mess on the bottom of the tank.
I have no live plants yet, planning on getting some but may or may not have them by the time I invest in another animal for the tank. I was reading about mystery snails, but I read they create a lot of waste. That seems to be to counterproductive to keeping my tank clean.
I want something easy, I'm very new at this and don't trust myself to anything high maintenance yet. Also, if there's something I can get that I wont run the risk of my betta trying to eat, that would be awesome. I know I couldn't help but feel bad if I took in another animal, only to have it eaten/injured.
