Muppet of the Sea
My 55 gallon tank is nearly finished cycling so it's time for me to start planning about adding something to clean up the leftover food for the fish I'll be adding. I already know about snails and plan on getting one, but I'd like to know which is better for a newly cycled tank - a crab or a shrimp? 10 years ago I had an Arrowhead Crab and he was a blast. I didn't add him until later though, so I don't know if they would be good for a newly cycled tank? I want something that I don't have to supply shells for (Mr. Arrowhead was great about not needing that! ) and I want it to be a lean mean cleaning machine that is hardy. What do you suggest?
