Boring? I dont know, i guess like the words fair and kind alittle too much.

Maybe i didnt make myself clear. I didnt mean you couldnt keep anything but pygmy corys, i ment only pygmy corys are suitable corys for a 38l tank.

I know shrimp don't contribute much to the stock density but I don't really want too many, and if I have more corries I would be worried about overstocking.
If your worried about over stocking skip the pleco, skip the rummys, the chances of getting a pair of breeding shrimp are very slim so you might as well skip those to. Your tank is small and your trying to add too many fish. Ignore what the lfs tells you they need sales. Do your own research and listen to the advice people give you here. We are all trying to help.

You can have lots more fish than that in a 36 litre and they can still be happy

Your looking to add around 20 fish to a 36L and its too many. Your tank is slightly under 10G (us) you can't put corys/catfish/shrimp/tetras/danios/gouramis in a 10g and keep them happy. They need numbers and space.

Edit:: I have a 70L tank with:

2 golden honey gourami (smaller than dwarfs)
6 neon tetras
3 guppies
3 harlequins
And some RCS.

That tank is at 90% stocking level. And will be 102% once I add 3 more harlequins.

My tank is 2x the size of yours and you want more fish than me. You came here for advice, it might not be what you wanted to hear but that does t make it wrong.

I personally wouldn't keep many fish in a tank, and considering their adult sizes.

I want my fish to swim around happily.
It's like choosing a house over an apartment. Maybe you can get another tank set up. That's what I am saving for=)
