    Hey guys.
    Getting rid of the rainbod shark tomorrow as it is being violent towards the platies. [Vid in my other post] Anyway I want to add another few and liked clown loaches but they grow to 12"! too big for me lol, so recommend any other bottom feeders or other fish I can add. Cheers

    Currently have neon tetras and platies.

    Cories are a good bottom dweller.
    I would add 1-2 more schools of tetras.

    in your size tank, id say cories or some ottos..or even a snail or two would work...maybe even a school of shrimp with plenty of java moss for hiding spots? even smaller loaches need to be with some of their own and there isnt room in a 17g tank...maybe time to get another and feed the MTS we all aquire?;D

    I would respectfully disagree with Amanda. I don't think your tank, at 17 gallons, can handle 1-2 more schools of tetras. I was thinking of a small school of otos, but I love Shawnie's shrimp idea.
