So this summer I'm planning on upgrading my 10 gallon to a 20 long tank. If my plan goes smoothly I'm going to get an aquaclear 50 filter and nicrew classic led plus light. I'm going to use sand (and maybe rocks) from a local creek. The plants I'm planning on using are jungle val, anacharis, hornwort, frogbit or water lettuce, crypts, and hairgrass. And my stocking plan is
8 x WCMM (I currently have 6 small ones)
6 x Zebra/glofish danios (I currently have 5)
6 x Panda corys (I currently have 4 in my betta community)
1 x Dwarf orange crayfish
Are there any other recommendations or flaws in the plan? Thanks in advance.

Ok so all the others a fine, but one id like to take a look at is the Dwarf Orange Crayfish.

They tend to be aggressive and may kill some of the Cories at night, some people state they could be ambush killers. Like killing Cories, guppies or etc. So, if you plan to get one of these just watch out it doesn't kill others.

How about shrimp or something??? There is Ghost, Vampire and all other cool shrimps!!!

But, if you are not into that then it’s all good!

Majority of people who have kept dwarf crayfish told me that they are pretty peaceful. I was also planning on getting a dozen ghost shrimp already. I'll also keep the cpo well fed just in case. Thanks for the concern though.
