    About to start a 20 gallon community tank. It will have 1 dwarf gourami, 1 blue neon tux guppy, 1 black molly, 1 red wag platy, 6 Cardinal Tetras, and some shrimp and snails. Is there a bottom feeding fish that is about 3 inches or less that is ok with being the only one of its kind? Thanks!

    They eat driftwood. Don't really want it to eat it.

    Check out the Pitbull Pleco or any of the other species under the genus Parotocinclus.

    I see the pit bull pleco needs at least 30 gallons.

    You're confusing the Pitbull with the Bulldog/Rubberlip. The Pitbull is in the genus Parotocinclus, as I said, and all species under it stay small.

    I have a rubberlip in my 55 and he is only about 2.5-3"... I have a clown in my 20 long and he is about the same size but the rubber lip is much more clown stays behind the sponge filter or under the driftwood most of the time
