    8 Endler Guppies
    8 Habrosus Cory Cats
    1 Clown Pleco
    Just something I was thinking about.

    What are the dimensions?

    The clown pleco needs a 20 gallon, also I believe they are big on wood chewing so you should have driftwood. Plecos are generally recommended for 20 gallon+ since they are huge on waste. Depending on th length of the tank you may or may not be able to do the corys

    Ah, thank you. That helps because I wasn't sure how the clown pleca waste would compare to another Pleco's waste output. For instance, a bulldog pleco.

    Got plenty of drift wood. No problem on that

    What about a mystery snail? I understand they are heavy on the waste output, but how do they compare against a dwarf pleco?

    The inside dimensions of the functional aquarium space come out to 13″H x 12″ D x 14.25″ W.

    Agreed with above, it's too small for the clown pleco and cory cat.

    You can add some shrimp or some snails if you want.

    I'd do a Red Whiptail instead of the pleco. Small on movement and small on waste as they don't need veggies or wood.

    Thank you for the suggestion! I might try that!
