New tank! Low tech 20H

Picked up a new 20H and set everything up this weekend. Waiting for the plants to perk up.. scape is still a work in progress

Light is a finnex stingray suspended 8" above the tank. Substrate is pool filter sand, and I will probably add a sprinkling of some coarse river gravel

I need some stocking suggestions. What fish would you put in this tank? I will probably stick with one single species plus shrimp.

Nice setup. Can't go wrong with shrimp. We're a big shrimp house here.����

Chili Rasbora
Pygmy cory cat
A couple oto cats
A handful of Amano Shrimp
A nerite snail or two.

These would all work well with some color of neocaridina shrimp.

I would also look into pseudomugil spp. rainbows. They will be "less" shrimp safe, but should still work.

New tank! Low tech 20H

Great suggestions..thanks! Very close to what I've been leaning toward. Red cherries and ramshorn snails are already in there. Those and some amanos were my only firm plan so far. My senior citizens are in the tank also, one remaining neon and 2 harlequin rasboras.. they are the last of their schools so no telling how much longer they will live.

I couldn't decide if I want a school of something like boraras or maybe espeis, hengelis, or just a large school of habrosus cories instead. Now you have just reminded me of pseudomugils, and I have always wanted a group of forktail blue-eyes. I think I just might go that route instead. I'm not really worried if they eat some shrimp. There are always several dozen in my other tanks anyway
