One of my mystery snails died today (r.i.p Felix). So I have to go get Damon another tank mate. Damon (I think) is a boredom tail biter so he is one of the few fish that actually benefits from having a buddy. I'm just trying to decide which tankmate to choose so I need y'alls opinions.
Option #1: Another Mystery Snail... I love these little guys but they technically over stock the 3 gallon tank Damon is in. Luckily the eclipse 3 filtration is excellent and I do 2 50% weekly water changes so its not too much of a problem. I would either get a white ms or a blue ms.. I already have a gold and a black one.
Option #2: 2-3 Ghost or Cherry Shrimp. I plan on getting these for my big tank once I get it planted but I think they would look nice in my 3 gallon as well. I would only get the cherry shrimp if my LFS has them (no ordering offline). With these I would only have to do 1 50% pwc a week because of their low bioload.
Option #3: I could switch Damon (3 gallon) with Demetri (4 gallon) and get Damon an ADF. The only problem is I think Damon might nip at the frog.. in which case I would put the frog in my big tank with mellow old Fish and look for a different tank mate for him.
So what do y'all think? Normally I would just let Damon have the full 3 gallons to him self but he likes having a "pet".
