Nano fish for nano tank

Hi! I'm looking for a group of nano fishes (max 8) for my nano 30l / 8 gallons tank. I'm using mostly ADA products (soil and fertilizers) + DIY CO2 system (sugar + yeast).



Currently I've around 50 red sakura shrimps breeding like crazy.

I had some Boras boras but they prefer low light and brown water; I've lots of light (because of the plants) and crystal water.

What do you suggest?

Thanks!!!

your shrimps won't breed like crazy once you add fish. most fish will eat the babies. i personally would keep it a shrimp only tank, but if you want to add fish any nano fish would do like rasboras or tetras. its more of a personal preference, what you want.

My boras boras didn't eat any shrimp they look scared of them.

I'm sure that a Betta would keep under control the breeding but I think that I can find something that fit the situation.

I have Chili Rasboras (Boraras Brigittae) with my Rilis and my colony is going strong. They may have eaten newly born shrimp but I've never witnessed it. I just consider it natures natural way of culling haha!

By the looks of your scape you have a lot of hiding places for the baby shrimp. You should be fine.

Chili/phoenix rasboras, as was suggested. The shrimp are bigger than them.

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

Are the Rasbora Brigittae fine in a tank with lots of light?

They should be, you have some areas they can move into the shadows to nest.
