    Can these guys you buy at pet shops be used to help keep tank quality better?
    Also what do they eat?

    they can have a tendancy of attacking fish, if you want to use an animal to increase your water quality get yourself some freshwater mussels

    you can order various native shrimps and snails off aquagreen also remember that more plants generaly help with water quality

    as well as not overfeeding, overfiltration and regular water changes

    you can get freshwater mussels in the brisbane river around the fernvale area. just have a dig around anywhere with a sandy bank.
