My new 220 litre tank should be here any day (can't wait) so I'm planning that whilst also thinking about what to do with my existing nano (aqua one 55 litre). Basically thr stock from that is going to transfer over to the new tank

For the nano I like the idea of shrimps with a few small fish. I've never kept shrimp so looking for suggestions of what fish and how many to put in with them as I'm getting conflicting views depending on who I speak to and what I read. Needless to say I want the shrimp to breed. Probably looking at cherry shrimp or other colour morths

Thanks

I keep RCS in my 50 l for mates they have two Amanos and Rams horns and pest snails and the RCS do well.

A good portion of 'nano' fish are fine with adult cherries and you can still get a colony if you plant heavily enough the babies have plenty of hiding spots.
