    Hey! I already made a stocfking post about my ten gal, but i was wondering which species do you think would go better with 2 peacock gudgeons, 2 amano shrimp, and 5 cory habrosus.
    Clown killifish (4)
    or sparkling gourami? (3)

    bonus: if the tank is lightly overstocked, wouold it be possible to keep a mystery snail or would their bio load be way too much for the tank?

    Tank would be highly planted, have a lid, and meet the ph/hardness requirements for all species

    Clown Killies would be the safer bet. Sparkling Gouramis are known to attack even very large shrimp, often working like a wolf pack.

    I would also add Sparkling gourami turn into terrors when guarding a bubble nest. My poor chili rasbora go into hiding when my gourami are spawning.

    Great! Thank you guys :) clown killis it is then!
    (is it okay to keep them in a group of 4 as opposed to 5? i don't think i could fit 5 in this tank, i'm already pushing it with 4)
