Hey everyone,

I'm currently in the process of setting up the fluval flex 15 for some multis. I have large escargot shells and some rocks in the corner to make a cave. I don't know if multis will live in the rocks since they are shell dwellers, so I was looking for a tank mate, that's a rock/cave dweller. I'm thinking about maybe 4-6 multis and possibly a pair or trio of the rock dwellers? Does anyone know of a small fish that fits that description and is compatible with multis? Also is this even advised?

Multis do best in a species only tank, however, since your tank is only 15 gallons, I would advise not to add a different species besides the multis.

Ok, and it's not like I'm stuck on just having multis, I'm open to another shell dweller too, maybe one that doesn't have to be speices only tank. Any that come to mind?

There's also Neolamprologus similis and Neolamprologus brevis.

The multis will use the rocks and shells. One type of shellies only, if you want to try another type of fish, use large tetras like diamond, lemon etc.
