That isn't a good idea.... they will stand out a lot more because they are very bright because of their bright red, they are also expensive so they will be an expensive snack. If the OP wants to try shrimp the OP should do ghost shrimp they are a lot cheaper and harder to see.
I wouldn't do swords in this size tank,
Maybe do this stock?
6 Platys (2m/4f)
3-4 Guppys (1m/2-3f)
4 Honey Gouramis
8 Panda Corys
8 Skirt Tetras (Black, white or glo variety)
1 Bn Pleco
Keep temp at 74F°
I think this stock should work but anyone would correct me if I'm wrong
You have too many males and they will most likely fight for territory and for mating so rehome 3 males and get 3 females then they will likely pair quickly.
1 Male with 5 females is probably one of the best ratios, hope this helps
Hello and Welcome to fishlore!!
Birchirs would get too big for the tank but a nice looking Pleco would work! I wouldn't do eels they get too big but maybe Kuhli Loaches? They look like eels.
What about this stock?
1 Clown Pleco
8 Kuhli Loaches
8 Cherry Barbs
8 Bleeding Heart Tetras
They look so cute!!
I only have a dog but I use to have snakes, lizards, frogs, scorpions, tarantulas and I have fish now.
I had to rehome all of them besides the dog and fish because I move to an apartment complex.
I also had Chickens, a pig, ducks and Turkey's so yeah I had lots of animals...
8 Praecox Rainbowfish
4 Guppys (1m/3f)
4 Platys (1m/3f)
3 Swordtails (1m/2f)
4 Honey Gouramis
2 Cockatoo Cichlids (1m/1f)
10 Panda Corys
1 Bristlenose Pleco
Keep temp at 74F°/75F°
I think this stock should work but anyone will correct me if I'm wrong
Ottos are very sensitive and very very hard to keep alive, not sure if you can trade them for the snails because with that stock I wouldn't add another fish but you could trade the Ottos for the Corys. The Honey Gouramis shouldn't eat the shrimp
Are you do a single male betta or a Female sorority?
I agree with @Katie13 that your stock is incompatible.
You could do
1 Male Betta or 6-8 Female Bettas
8 Cardinal Tetras
8 Rummy nose Tetras
8 Aldofia Corys or Albino/Bronze Corys or Sterbia Corys
