Another post about stocking a 12g fluvalwhat edge

Hello fish people!

Ok so yes, the 12g fluval edge is a pretty tank and I got caught up in aesthetics and only now realize that I can't really put what I thought I could put in it - so I need help.

So currently in my tank I have a white holey rock, drift wood, Java fern, moss balls and some fake plants (go easy on me here), my substrate is a buff colored sand. I plan on adding Java moss and some other tall background plant this week.

This is what I'm thinking fish wise:

A school of neon tetras OR harlequin rasboras (6)

Guppies - (3) 2 female 1 male

Pygmy cory cats - (4)

Is this too much? I think it is by 1 or 2 fish but if I do frequent water changes and keep my tank heavily planted then I think I'll be ok. If this set up doesn't work at all what are my other options?

I should mention I started a shrimp tank, RCS and bought ten and seriously cannot find them. So, no shrimp in this fluval edge as I want to actually see and enjoy what I buy.

Thank you!

I have this tank also. Let me tell you, it's a beauty but getting a fish back out of it is really hard. If it were me I'd do the harlequin rasboras and pygmy corys. Fyi the light is not extremely conducive to plant growth.
