Hi all, my girlfriend is in love with this tank and I am planning on surprising her with one for her office. That being said it has a small footprint. I am going to heavily plant it, but need some extra help finding unique options for fish she likes the idea of yellow shrimp for the bottom but also loves schooling fish. I don’t know if a nice school of a small barb like Odessa? Would work or should I go for like a scissor tail rasbora?

Schooling fish don't usually do well in column tanks with the exception of nano fish. Try micro rasboras like chili or galaxy or try ember tetras instead.

Chili rasboras do work really well in tanks with small footprint and heavily planted. Livebearers like platies or guppies would work too.
