Since both my LFS's have run out of bettas, I decided to turn my small tank into a goldfish tank and after using part of my used fluval 204 sponge managed to get a good filtration going . For a bottom feeder I chose a small fiddler crab . Is this OK for a pair of bubble-eyes?
Is this OK or should I transfer the crab to my larger 15 gallon which already has a ancistrus as a bottom feeder?

the crab will probably hurt the fish, crabs and fish usually arent good together, the crab might attack the fish, this is not always the case but it has been known to happened.

thanks The fiddler crab actually attacked one of the goldfish whilst I was feeding them . Now he resides in my tetra and livebearer community tank nibbling on a algae tab

From the description "small tank"...the tank might not even be suitable for the goldfish. Bubbleyes are also very delicate.
