I'm wanting to make sure I understand this right. So long as I have the proper soil, cap, plants, and lighting, I should be able to successfully stock, say, a three gallon tank with a few MTS and RCS? And that's without a filter?

Because I have a 3 gal tank that needs to get some hard water stains scrubbed off and I want to have a shrimp tank to breed and either sale/make a potential snack/tankmate for my betta. Plus it'd be good practice for when I want to plant a 20 long community tank.

Roanoke (SD betta) • Smaug (VT betta)
Houdini (zebra nerite) • Houston (black mystery snail)

I really want to turn my 15 gallon tank into a natural soil based tank, how many plants would be ideal for it? Can you do too many? I currently have a huge double fin betta, a swordtail mollie and green/spotted cory catfish hybrid.

What else should I get for the tank? I don't want to over whelm the tank with too much, but love the look of a natural tank and like the idea of it being a little ecosystem. (Eventually I will have a 100 gallon tank.)
