What do you think about bottom feeder?
Most people would consider bottom feeders as cleaning fish. Well, they do eat the left over food on the bottom. Some people think that they eat fish poop as well. The true is that when fish eat fish food, they won't be able to consume all the nutrient in food. Partial leftover nutrient will come out together with fish poop. That's why bottom feeder may look like eating fish poop. You don't want to over feeding fish, because bottom feeders have capacity of eating. If you have a lot of bottom feeders, a better option is to feed them separately with their food. Suggest bottom sinking wafer, before light off. They are more active looking for food at night.
I think bottom feeder is a great addition to aquarium, not just because they clean the bottom. There are beautiful bottom feeders. And because of them, the bottom level of aquarium would be full of activities. My favorite ones are corydoras catfishes. Most corydoras catfishes are pretty active. They stay on bottom. and swim around, and have fun. And I really enjoy their sharing behavior. They love hanging out with each others.
