I skimmed the first two page and did not see a topic on this. Though probably been asked before so forgive me. Using my phone so it makes skimming and reading hard sometimes. Anyways the topic says it all but here are some specs. 5g bowfront currently one betta fake plants (changing for real) driftwood. I have been having some algea problems so I am looking for a companion fish that will help keep the problem down. Tried Mystery Snail and was not happy with the outcome. Not from the betta he pretty much ignored it after the first few days. But it went dormant after the first few weeks and then died. All my specs were normal and such. The betta was ignoring it so not cause there I kept a careful watch on it. No heavy metals in my water. Probably something to do with when it was in the lfs tanks or a fluke. Anyways, I was considering shrimp. Cherry or ghost. But was wondering of other thoughts/suggestions and experiences.
