Okay, so I originally wanted a........ 20 gal high with 4 cardinals 4 neons 5 or so corys My betta 10 ghost shrimp And one mystery snail. I quickly changed my mind because A) my LFS doesn't carry cardinals, B) corys need schools, C) ghost shrimp are bullies, and D) I fell in love with RCS/Orange pumpkin shrimp. So I came up with..... 20 gal long with School of neons (6) School of corys (6) [Panda?] Steve Cherry shrimp (5ish perhaps?) A Mystery snail (After a month or so) And a school of some other kind of tetra. But I changed my mind after this one because A) I need more shrimp to establish a good breeding colony, and B) the 20 long wasn't big enough for a second school of tetras. So THEN I got this..... 29 Gallons 8 neons 8 harlequin rasboras 6 cherry shrimp Steve (betta) 3 albino corys & 3 bronze corys 1 Snail after about a month or so of algae growth. (Mystery snail?) I'm just so conflicted! I then changed my mind to a 20 long livebearer community but I don't know what that was all about. :/ I don't want them any more. Please post all your stocking ideas for a 20-29 gallon tank! If they include a betta, that's great, but not necessary. I'm planning on actually getting a 10 gallon and dividing it and getting another betta for it at some point. Sigh. Please post ideas! And different centerpiece fish as well. The plans MUST include RCS or orange pumpkin shrimp, I really like them. Also 1-3 mystery snails, I might be getting some purple ones in the future.
