Stock small shrimp species like cherry, yellows etc about 10 shrimp per 1 fish bioload wise. Bigger shrimp like Amano have a bigger bioload obviously.
One fish I didn't see, the White Cloud minnow. Not a conventional choice, but one of my favorite fish - they have amazing personalities for such small fish. The males spend all their time displaying and chasing with each other,
("nipping" each other, but never doing damage, looks more like they're dancing than fighting)
Like someone said, dwarf gouramis are bad news. Don't get Colisa lalia. Honey gourami aka Trichogaster chuna are a much better choice. Or even better, a fancy Betta, before I upgraded mine to my 20G I had him in a 10, and he loved it just as much as he loves the 20 now. Who ever says Bettas are afraid of bigger tanks has never kept one in a planted tank. Beautiful.
