Should anything else be added to a 10 gallon with 8 guppies? I understand about the mollies, but what about platies?

Bottom dwelling fish: I love cories, but I don't think I have enough room for the number they should be kept in. What about ghost or cherry shrimp? I would need something that I could have just one or two of.

You're pretty stocked now. There won't be anymore room soon. You can add shrimp, they hardly produce anything. You can add 2-5 and then if you want, one nerite snail.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

So it seems like shrimp is the way to go. Does it matter what kind? I really wouldn't want more than 3.

Nope, it doesn't matter.

plant it, do your regular 50% water changes, and watch them. you should be fine, even adding 4-5 shrimp. :)

It's artificially planted, except for 1 small anubias. I don't know how to keep live plants, or what kinds need low light, low maintenance, and gravel substrate.
