cichlid tank clean up crew

Postby jdt28 » Thu Sep 27, 2012 10:39 am

I have an aquarium which at the moment only contains 2 juvenile Firemouths/1 juvenile Rocio ocotal /1 young Thorichthys sp. Mixteco Gold Cichlid.My question is,What do you recommend as a clean up crew with these fish,these will be the only fish that the clean up crew has to live with.Would a BN catfish be OK?.Any advice very welcome

I've always kept BN's with my cichlids, i don't keep them as a clean up crew though as i want algae on my rocks for grazing, i keep em because i like them :lol:

They are little poop machines though & will add a lot to your bio-load, what is it you want them to clean up?
