Hi,
I want your honest opinion on how stocked my 10 gallon planted tank is. At this point I would really like to add some fish to the mid/upper water column but I'm not sure it's advised.

Stock:
75 Red Cherry Shrimp
1 Mystery snail
1 Golden Inca snail
3 Peppered Cory's

Tank parameters are:
70°F
No ammonia
No nitrites
Nitrates are less than 5
pH 7.8
TDS 185
GH 8
KH 3

I'm considering adding 8-12 Ember Tetras since they are a small species and a new stock arrived at local store. Would also consider other very small/micro species (so they don't eat my beautiful shrimp too much).

Thoughts!?
Thank you

My daughter-in-law has celestial pearl danios in her 20 gallon long shrimp tank and it's working out well. I think you'd be okay with 1/2 dozen or so in a 10.
Do you think 8 would be ok? I hear they feel more comfortable in groups of at least 8-12.
