Ok, before anyone says it, I know I am insane for starting with a 1 gallon tank, but whatever, its all I have space for. Ok, I have a sand bed with some plants that seem to be doing really well, two male guppies, and three small ghost shrimp. My problem is that I was told the shrimp would help clean up the algae, and they seem to be purely non-vegetarian. I have tried two snails now, both of which lasted about two weeks then died. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up, but I don't want to invest that kind of money in disposable snails every two weeks. I do a 25% water change once a week, and I just can't keep up. Can anyone recommend a cleaner that can help me out? I assume the tank is too small for most of the traditional algae eater fish, so I am thinking that some kind of invert is my best bet, but I'm open to anything at this point.
