Hello, I'm a noob fishkeeper. Actually, pre-noob as my fish tank (56 gallon pillar) is currently cycling and I have no fish just yet. I posted elsewhere here on fishlore to get comments on a various fish communities. Learning a great deal. My latest idea is a pretty laid back tank with peaceful fish living in harmony (think Bob Marley with gills). Additionally, I had visions of happy fish swimming and playing as little shrimp and snails scamper across the tank structure (should bring back visions of sea-monkeys). As I think I am learning, shrimp and larger fish such as mollies or platys don't get along. Bummer, as I am losing my sea-monkey vision. Is my assumption correct that I should probably stay away from a tank mix that includes these types of fish with shrimp? Are snails safe at least? I have a 4 gallon bio-orb. Would that be a suitable place to have shrimp and a snail or two (and perhaps a dwarf frog)? I think I have a bit of MTS and my tank is only in week two of the cycle... Let me know your thoughts.
