Sand sifter recommendations

Postby Hank Hill (FL) » Sun Dec 13, 2020 5:47 pm

I have a 55 with 2 brichardi and 4 leleup, and 3 julidochromis transcriptus. I’m looking to add a single(maybe pair) fish to sift thru the sand. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you.

It sounds like the tank is already full, why do you want a fish that will sift the sand? Do you have substrate issues?

My sand looks dirty is some places. I’m just looking for someone to turn it over and keep it looking clean.

None of the Tanganyikan 'sand sifters,' however defined, will be appropriate for this tank. You need a catfish.
