That looks like a lot of fish for such a small ecosystem.

They're all schooling fish.. The only fish appropriate for a taller 7g is a small schooling fish like a micro rasbora.

I'd remove the barbs, and I don't know why you'd keep tetras that wont have schooling mates.

I know the Barbs will have to come out as they get bigger. I'm cycling my 55g at home now and that is where they will end up. I want to make this a shrimp tank soon. What stock should I get?
