    Default Bottom cleaner for planted discus tank

    I am looking for a good bottom cleaner for my discus tanks, am looking for some Sterbai Corydoras, or anything in that family which will work.
    Or even other bottom dwellers that might work.
    Am in NY state so looking somewhat local or someone who ships.
    Thanks
    Larry

    My sterbae and albino bristlenose do a fantastic job and do not actively compete with the discus during feeding time.

    i Rarely have a problem ordering from aquabid.com

    Best deal on sterbais comes from AQUASTOCK on Aquabid. If you need more than 6 (highly recommended), I'd contact him directly via e-mail and get a quote on larger numbers. I ordered 3 dozen several years ago and he got it to me with minimal freight. Most of them are still sitting in my 110 gal tank today. These are pond-raised Florida fish, not wilds from South America. I don't worry about gill flukes with these.

    I also like the 6 pack of XL Amano shrimp that Aqua Hana sells, they are huge! large enough not to interest the Discus.
