In the next month or so, I'm going to be setting up my fish tank anew - my last endler bit it a couple weeks ago. So, I want something hardy, cheap, and pretty. I am mostly planning on doing this because it provides good entertainment for a watchful cat when I am out at work during the day. I will get more live plants and it was suggested at the pet store that I get a loach, which eats snails. I had really gotten into the snail breeding by accident and frankly, I don't want that to happen again. The other two I liked were (I know, boring!) neon tetras and glowfish. Apparently all three should get along. However, I thought I'd see if you guys had any other recommendations? I'd love to hear them! Thanks in advance!
