Microfish ideas for a HUGE shrimp tank

Chilli rasboras are super tiny and I believe shrimp safe. I have cpd's with my shrimp and they don't bug the adults but baby's may turn into snacks

no, no decision yet. Its looking like the 80 is being pushed back at least another couple months. I just finished, stained, and trimmed out the stand for my 100g. I'm waiting on the 55mm glass hole saw to arrive so i can get the plumbing done and get things set so i can set up the 100, and transfer fish from the 80 to it finally. But even after that I have to focus my finances on the house and bills and get myself back into a financial safety net before i can think more about getting the 80 equipped, aquascaped, and stocked.

The finished stand. The bottom right will hold my 30g tank as a wet/dry sump for the 100. with left portion for storage and the RENA canister (previously used for the 30) that I will use for extra filtration and cross flow in the 100.

And this is the 80g with custom DIY 3D background i made for it. For those wondering wtf I am ranting about. Sorry about the light cord, it was acting up and i had just got it set back on the tank for the pic. Have to re run the wire tomorrow behind the stand.

Its foam yes, but cement no. I coated it with Dry-Lok waterproofing. Its completely inert and has held up really well against the fish and beating it takes daily. You can see the full vid log on my YouTube channel. I have it as an 8 part playlist. My channel is in my signature.
