Bottom dwellers

What type of bottom dwellers would be compatible with tiger barbs? I was thinking of getting a small pleco, shrimp or african dwarf frogs but im not sure if they are compatible with the tigers. I would like a crayfish but im pretty sure thats a bad idea, is it?

Bristlenose plecos stay small, so you might get away with one in there.

What are the dimensions of the tank, IMO BNs require a tank that is 20 inches or longer because they can get up to 5 inches long

Cool, I just got one of those tanks today. I just have one note about it, what filter came with it if it is the PF10 I recommend that you get a larger filter to be able to support tiger barbs and a BN pleco

Right, BN plecos put out a lot of waste. Any kind of fish that grazes constantly on algae does. Sucker fish, plecos, platies and guppies . . . otos have to be among the worst of the small suckerfish.

Cory cats work too. Any loach that stays under 5" would work. I think yo-yo loaches work. A few more but I can't remember them off hand.
