    Shrimp eats leftover food but guppies will eat the shrimp babies.Otherwise I suggest otocinclus but all these contribute to bioload. If theres leftover food you are prob feeding too much.Common plecos that r cheap $3-4 grow very big.Best bet is starlight at $8.Also bottom feeders will not eat guppy fry as they inhabit diff levels in tank

    1. Bristlenose pleco is the smallest pleco i come across. Max size is about 4-5 inches. My small pleco grows really really slowly. I heard they will have growth spurt then will slow down again.
    2. Feed less man.
    3. No, unless fry intentionally go under the pleco's mouth.
    4. I bought the baby albino bristlenose pleco from clementi at around $3~. Adults are priced around $30. There are other colors with various pricing. It should be noted that baby ones, while cheaper, are less hardy so good acclimatization is crucial.

    Answer 1: I personally keep small pleco called Starlight Pleco/L183, is an awesome and beautiful fish when it occasionally appear during the day but spend most of their time hiding.

    Answer 2: Amano Shrimp,Pleco,Corydoras,Snails and any bottom feeder fish.

    Answer 3: Basically any fish that can fit the fish mouth stand a chance of getting eaten. You need to do your research before buying it or through trial and error.

    Answer 4: Basically all the ornament fishes are cheap, except some rare Pleco breed or Corydoras breed that can cost around 10 to 30 dollars each.
