Awesome! Any recommendations on cool Bottom fish?
The Neons and Platties Got the middle covered and guppies take care of the top, just not sure about bottom fish. Also I plan on getting a mystery snail and a few ghost shrimp.

Joe,
Can you list your current stock? It is a 20gal tank right? That will help with recommendations on what else to add. Obviously, you don't want to add anything else at this point, until the cycle is complete.

Ok... cories would be an ok choice. They stay pretty small. I have never had them, I am sure someone can give further advice on them.

You can add a few more ghost shrimp... they add almost no bioload and with 2, you would never see 'em. I think 10 would be a good number.

Other than that, looks like you should be good.

Nice, I will do more GS and maybe go to 5 guppies, but that's prob all my 20gal can handle.

Cories are GREAT! They are amicable, and love all other fish. Three of them would work fine, but four would be even better!
