7.5 Gallon - open to stocking suggestions

Hi there, brand new to this forum. Iíve recently returned to this hobby and have a 20 gallon high up and running. In my excitement over how much joy fishkeeping is giving me, I went ahead and got a nano 7.5 gallon. I set it up last week using pre-established media and plants. Iíve also ordered some additional lighting for the plants. Iím only one week into cycling so I know I have lots of time but obviously as I sit and admire the tank, Iím contemplating what Iím going to stock it with. Open to any and all suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

For reference, in my 20G - I have 9 pencilfish, a betta, 6 albino cories and some blue rili shrimp.

I think a small group of guppies would look cool in there.

Well it just so happens that my friend has offered me guppies if I want any. She’s having a population explosion at the moment. Thanks for the suggestion!

Make sure you get single sex if you dont want a population of your own.

You could stock it with shrimp! I have 3 shrimp tanks myself you should look into it! Both neocaridina and Caridina species offer TONS of varieties of shrimp!

Oh yes I should have said I’m definitely looking at Shrimp. The Rili’s I have in my other tank are so lovely.

Awesome I love Rili shrimp! I’ve got some Crystal red, Crystal black, black and red pinto shrimp, black and red King Kong, blue bolt, and yellow and blue diamond shrimp. lol I might be a little more obsessed with shrimp than your average person ��
