Hello!

My cycling is going well and soon I'll be ready to add some fishes in my tank! I already created a list of potential fishes, available to my store, in an excel file. I'd like to have advice about good fit.

Water spec:
ph : 7.6 (this is worrying me a bit. May be a little bit high)

Tank spec :
Aquarium Capacity: 23 US Gal.
Aquarium Size : 30” x 12” x 18”
Filter Capacity: 20-50 US Gal.
Filter Pump Output: 200 US Gal./h

Plants :

In my list of potential fishes, you'll see two lines per fishes. I got information on two different websites about ph. The ph information from the store are far less wide, this is why my 7.6 is worrying me. I would like to have some amano shrimp as well if possible.

Killies and Tetra are iffy together, Tetras don't move fast enough to not get nibbled on. Neither do the Longfin Danios. Pretty sure that Rasbora would meet the same fate.
Rams are pretty peaceful, but they may get defensive if the bottom is crowded with Corys and Loaches.
Barbs are pretty nippy as well.

In that size tank I would suggest a dozen neon tetra or other similar size tetra or danio plus six cory from the same temperature range.

The pH is less of an issue than you think. Commercially farmed fiah are able to adapt to a wider range than their wild parameters.
