Good Morning,
I am setting up a new tank. I got a pretty nice deal on an Aqueon 30 rimless, which is a bit of an odd tank - dimensions wise. It's ~L18"xW18"xH23". This is my first tank with this much vertical over horizontal space.

But anyway, two questions -
1) I want to do Dwarf Shell Dwellers (Multis) - How many should I do given the 18x18 footprint with a bit of hardscape (seiryu stone that will have a sprinkle of anubias) taking up... about 1/3 of it? I was thinking ~8 of them.

2) Given the tall water column I want to add some mid-top swimmers as well, but I have seen so many conflicting ideas from so many different forums. So, here I am. What will likely be happy in the hard water high ph upper water column, given the 18x18 swim space, and not **** off the grumpy little guys (or eat them)?

Thanks for any feedback.

Yeah, my new plan is break down one of my existing 10 gallons, put all the plants in the 30, and do a 10 gallon multI tank and fill the 30 with some **** guppies and kuhlis or cories. Probably so amanos too. And I may end up with a stray female dwarf gouramI in there if she gets bullied by the male.

I love my betta imbellis (peaceful betta). he's in my 11g tall (? idk what it's called). I love the option to display the species that will live in a tank in the aquadvisor site.
