So the 12 Gal is pretty much all decorated. Flourite and gravel mix, lots of moss, lots of plants, lots of hiding places. I recently added 4 amanos and 5 RCS, and they're doing great. Gyrados could care less, and they've scattered into all the nooks and crannies. I plan on getting about 20 more rcs so I have a good population.
I was planning on doing 3 platys in this community tank but I went on Aqadvisor and was stunned at the bio-load 3 platys put on the tank. Now I'm thinking of just 4 panda cories, which are way less bio-load wise.
But would there be too much competition between my legion of shrimps and the cories? I'd like to think there is plenty of space in this 12 gal but would there be anything special I'd have to do?
Below is the tank (dimly lit pic I apologize, there is a large piece of vertical driftwood covered in christmas moss on the right hiding the heater/filter intake) and my 2 Aqadvisor stats I ran. One with platys and one with the pandas.
Open to opinions.
