The Tank is going to be lit with 2 36in Finnex Stingray and filtered with 2 110 Aqua Clears. I'm planning on the back 12in of the aquarium to be heavily planted with stem plants and having some wood some were in there too. I want to mainly stock this tank with nano fish (or nano fish compatible) and shrimp. This tank will being going in the living room so fish with lots of color are what I'm mainly going for. I am aware that the shrimp might become a snack for some of the fish but I'm hoping that with all of the plants and putting them in a month or two in advance will help them get established. As for the plants the substrate will either be Home Depot gravel or Eco Complete. I'm probably forgetting some information but anyways.

Ok ive still got a while till I set it up, 2 months. Want to make sure I'm positive this is what I want. Any one care to explain how shrimp breeding works to me or have any good articles to read, Like how to know which species of shrimp will and won't cross breed.
