gringostar9 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?

MABJ 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.

gringostar9 Update;
Glosso did not make it. Looking to replace it with some other carpeting plant or moss. Added some tiger lotus and a crypt (can anyone identify it). Also took out the betta and added some Barbs and tetras. Also added 2 Zebra Nerita Snails.
Give me some tips on what you would do, and let me know what you think of the tank.
Thanks Mike.

vnghost similar equipment in my fluval flora. also growing hc, and have 3 harlequins. maybe we can help each other if problems arise.

MABJ Not to harp on tank sizes and such, but harlequins are more suited for 20 gallon tanks. They like large schools and long tanks.

I love your tank though. I've wanted an EBI for a while. I love fluval products.
