Talking New(ish) to Fish keeping

Joined here a few weeks ago and decided to finally post my introduction thread with my setup. I have a nice little ten Gallon with 3 male guppies, 2 cories, and 2 blue gouramis as well as some anachris which has grown huge. I am going to give the larger Gourami to a friend with a 55 gallon tank which is a hard decision as he is filled with personality and is absolutely stunning but I want the best for both fish and I don't want to kill the little one who is getting bullied by transferring him to a new tank.

Once the little one gets a bit bigger I will find a new home for him. In the mean time I am going to move the smaller Anachris into the light a bit more and trim the bigger ones. I believe joining AA will help me get through any tough patches in the hobby and keep me from making mistakes like putting 2 crayfish in a peaceful tank.

In the future I hope to get a 55 brackish tank as I find many of the fish that are brackish to be as intriguing as marine fish but with less stress involved in keeping them.

Welcome to AA! I have a brackish 3 gallon with only shrimp. What kind of fish do you plan on putting in your tank?

I plan on keeping a "Freshwater" moray eel, a Dragon Goby, some Mollies, and Thai crabs to help clean up. What kind of a shrimp do you keep?

I have opae ula shrimp. I dont think I can put anything else in there for now. I did find some brackish water wild guppies and mollusks. But I didn't want to take them
