    Hi I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for my tank stocking idea for my ten gallon planted tank

    3×dwarf sparkling gourami
    cherry shrimp
    corydoras (bronze)
    8×chili rasboras

    I have 2 corydoras already and before you blow up the comments on this I have had them for a year and a half like this and they are fat and happy

    Kapow!
    I wanted to be the first to blow up the comments! Lol.
    I don’t get into stocking issues unless it’s a big fish in a little bowl. Speaking of which, you have a ten gallon, right? Making sure I heard right. Are you wanting us to say sounds perfect or would you like alternatives? :)

    Sparkling Gourami does better in a species tank.

    Could I keep the corydoras since they are bottom dwelers. Would the shrimp be ok

    Hi, sparkling Gourami would be great in a 10 gallon but unfortunately corys, especially bronze as they can get well over 3”, wouldn’t be suitable with them as they need more space.
    Shrimp wouldn’t be good with the sparklers either as they will hunt them down, even the adult shrimp as I’ve witnessed on several occasions they’re ferocious little predators.
    I’d suggest just having the Gourami on their own with maybe a snail
