Here's a picture of the tank as of this morning:

There's a variety of different plants (including some that are floating because they became uprooted and I haven't replanted them yet.

I have 2 juvenile platys (about 1 inch long & the first fish in my tank), 3 adult platys (1m 2f), 1 female dwarf gourami, 4 kuhli loaches, 3 mystery snails and about 10 shrimp (8 glass/ghosts, 2 RCS).

I think they should be ok, they seem to have plenty of places to hide. Keep the ones that are floating where they are it will add extra protection for the fry. Love the plants btw!

Thanks! They seem to be doing really well do far, with the exception of the ambulia which seems to be an algae magnet, but the shrimps adore it so it stays.

I really hope they grow up! I'm going to have to get another tank to put fry into when I spot them or something I think.
