29 gallon tank shrimp/community tank setup?
Hello! I'm receiving a 29 gallon aquarium on Saturday and trying to decide how to set it up. I will be able to get a small sponge that has been filtering the water in a salamander tank to hopefully speed the cycle along.
I'd like to put cherry shrimp, kuhli loaches (my favourite fish!) and a school of wild guppies/endlers in the tank. Maybe eventually a couple of dario dario. I'll probably add some java ferns, mosses and stem plants (depending on what I can find available locally).
Does that sound like it could work?
Also, from the research I've done it looks like I should add the shrimp first so I can let them establish their population before I put any fish in there. But I hear they are very sensitive to water quality? Would it be better to cycle the tank, add a few male guppies, then put in the shrimp?
Thanks for any advice!
