If those with long term experience could help me out that would be awesome. This is my current setup and my plans but I'm not sure how that really works with some of these fish.

45g
Current:
2 Angelfish (no idea sex, haven't bonded or paired remotely but no aggression)
2 Honey Gourami, my breeding pair apparently
1 Mango Pleco (I was told it would work, I know that's wrong but its there for now)
1 Clown Pleco (both Plecos currently chill together)
9 Panda Cory
7 mixed Endler Livebearers (think all male but 2 false males are looking awfully chunky)
3 White Wizard Snails
?? Pond Snails

Potential:
2 Angelfish
2 Honey Gourami
1 Clown Pleco
9 Panda Cory
7 Endlers
3 Assassin Snails (I'm moving the Trapdoor snails) because the pond snails are growing large and their bioload is not needed
10-15 Jade Shrimp

#1 15g
Current
1 Male Betta
1 SAE (who I'd like to move to a bigger tank but..)
4 Endlers, Japanese Blue
2 Cobalt Gobys (they could be moved away from the SAE and be happy)
8 Red Crystal Shrimp
2 White Wizard Snails
...Pond Snails

Potential
1 Male Betta
1 SAE
4 Endlers
8 RC Shrimp
2 White Wizard Snails

#2 15g
Current
1 Male Betta
7 Gertrudes
1 Panda Garra (I was told this would be ok, but its not..)
1 Bristlenose Pleco (juvenile)
5 Golden Nebula Shrimp

Potential
1 Male Betta
7 Gertrudes
1 Bristlenose
5 Shrimp
- the Panda Garra could go to the 45g but honestly I don't think I have the tank for him, and he or she should probably go back to the fish store

#3 15g, in progress
Current
No one

Potential
1 Female Betta
5 Clown Killis
2 White Wizard Snails
? Cobalt Gobys or the SAE if I need to adjust the #1 15g

10g
Current
5 Clown Killis
15 Shrimp, Blue Velvet & Green Jade

Potential - this will become a fry tank or hospital tank afterwards
Honey GouramI Fry
-Plan to relocate the shrimp

9g
Current
1 Male Betta
4 Endlers, 2 male/2 female, AdrianHD
2 Amanos
1 Black Crystal Shrimp
3 Snails, Pond & Ramshorn

Potential
No changes, although the endlers are likely to give birth within a week or two, but I don't know that I have tank capacity to move them

5g
Current
1 Male Betta
3-4 Amano Shrimp
1 Black Crystal Shrimp
2-3 Snails, Pond

Potential
No changes, the Betta is happy as things are - he tolerates tank mates but in a 5 gallon I'm not thrilled with that idea for his sake

#1 2.5g
Currently
50-60 Honey GouramI Fry

Potential
No one, I'd like to move the fry to the 10g

#2 2.5g
Current
1 Female Betta
Snails

Potential
No one, I'd like to move her to the #3 15 gallon as mentioned above



I have a 5 gallon and a 3 gallon I could set up for others/fry/hospital, but shelf/table space is at a premium with what's already setup

What changes can I make? What changes should I make?

I would move the SAE to the bigger tank, not quite sure what the issue with that was :D

Oh he's a bit of a dink, I just wasn't sure if he'd decide that harassing the Corys or the Gouramis (and their nests) would be fun. But he's quickly outgrowing the 15.

Oh I see, Corys will likely be fine, my big one and my smaller ones never really bug them. The adult Honeys will likely be fine, the nests I imagine not but that goes for most fish :D
