5 gallon stocking?

Fiosco345

So i wanted to stock my tank but I'm wondering if the bioload would be too much i wanted like 5 neo shrimp and 3 jade mystery snails. By then the surface would have a lot of folaters and there will be a bunch of java ferns and java moss on the ground and plenty of algae for them to eat is that too much?

3 snails might be a bit much, i would do 1 or 2 instead. Snails tend to poop a lot.

i figured the extra plants would detox it faster... and i already orderd the snails so i was wondering on a lower number of shrimps

The shrimp have a pretty negligent bioload. May as well give it a try and see. Can always move snails later if need be.

pm Pwilly07. He sells shrimp and keeps the culls in seperate tanks. I bet he'd be willing to sell some to you.
