    Here's what I came up with on aqadvisor:

    I already have the neons, amano shrimp and 3 corys. I wanna stick to this stocking list. Is this good? Open to ideas and changes in numbers

    I would go for more cories personally. Otherwise looks ok to me!

    Up the cories to 12 (all needs to be peppered). I personally wouldn't do the endlers. They need warmer water than the neon tetra and peppered cory, IMO.

    That list leaves you understocked, but that's fine.

    Endlers are fine in the temps the other fish need, imo.
    And I agree, up the group of cories to 12.

    Keep the temp around 70-72 Fahrenheit.

    IMO, you also have room for 4 peacock gudgeons and a honey gourami or two.

    How about
    12 Neon Tetras
    10 Endlers or Guppies
    12 Peppered Cories
    2 Bolivian Rams
    1 Honey Gourami

    Hhmmmm, but aqadvisor says that I would be overstocked with 12 corys.... what about 8 corys? Since the endlers and cherry shrimp will bread and populate...

    Aqadvisor is wrong.

    I think I'll go for my current plan and add more corys, thanks :)

    In this case, yes. They're not always wrong but they often are.
