10g tank stocking

I have a 10g that I plan on making a planted tank, and wanted to know if this stocking would work.

6-8 corydoras habrosus
3 otos
any kind of centerpiece like neon tetra or something compatible with the cories and otos.

The male endlers livebearers are pretty and come in assorted colors or fancy guppies if you prefer.

If you keep a routine maintenance schedule, you will be fine.....especially with live plants.

CPD's (celestial pearl danio's, also known as galaxy rasboras), Chili rasboras are also awsome fish. Really small fish (nano's) are your best options for a 10

10g tank stocking

Sparkling gouramis don't get larger than an inch to inch and a half. Heard they are not good with shrimp though.....so be careful if you go that route.

I like the micro rasboras route. I think I may be getting chilis for my nano.

sparkling might eat the smaller shrimp but with lots of cover it could work. i have the danios with my shrimp and they never mess with any so that would deff be the safe route.

deff not the neon tetras

the celestial pearl danios are a good choice, iv never kept the others. the CPD's are pretty easy to breed, idk if that is a plus or minus for you... id start with 10 of them in a 10g.

You should be ok with that. Again, you have to keep up with that maintenance schedule.

Psuedomugils are another good choice and do well in a bit higher Ph. Pencilfish, Ruby Tetra, and Embers are some of my favs for lower Ph.
