    whoa...if you got 5 danios and 3 ghost shrimp your tank would already be way overstocked. Was it the pet store people who told you that? just 5 danios mgiht be pushing it a little...Gunnie and Butterfly and the rest can probably give you some suggestions as to the fish to get...

    for a 5 galllon you couldn't put alot of stuff in it,maybe a couple of swords or mollies or something like that.i wouldn't put an algae eater in it for sure.

    Dino is very careful with stocking and he did say 5 danios. But any more than that will be overstocked.
