Definitely go with the delivery day thing. You can get some great stuff that way. Plus, stores will sell you individually packaged fish in their shipping bag, without them ever coming into contact...

2 gals is a bit small for pygmy cories, simply because of swimming space. How active are they?

Really?
Could they have come in on some plants, perhaps as eggs?
Any clue how many?
Happen to have a picture or two?

Logic says that most shrimp will change to match the shade of their substrate. Therefore, white sand = paler shrimp, dark sand = darker shrimp. I've seen this happen with various kinds of fish, too.

Otos are a bit iffy when it comes to shipping, so 5 out of 6 for that long in the mail is good. Normally it's best to ship fish overnight, in order to avoid 40+ hours in transit.

Why is duckweed considered such a pest?

Yes, I know the stuff multiplies like crazy and is nearly impossible to completely remove, but... All you gotta do is swipe a net along the top a couple of times when you get to having a bit too much.

If you can find some cardinals who are healthy at your LFS, then go for them. Cardinals are captive bred sometimes and can be bought already used to water they normally wouldn't tolerate.

If you only have a 5g for them, do not get more. That's honestly a bit small for any cories, but it's okay for temporary housing. If you will definitely upgrade a tank soon, to at least 20 gallons,...

Not a couple of pencils, but 6 or more would work.
Two rams, a bunch of pygmy cories, and amano shrimp? That'd work, and you could include some pencilfish or perhaps a few featherfin rainbows.

That's what my pencils do. More blocks in the line of sight should help, and a slightly lower temperature might help, but that's just typical dominant male VS dominant male.

Doesn't look like a concern. If it spreads or anything it's a problem, but it's probably just a natural variance in coloration.

You could probably keep a bristlenose, 9 or so skirt tetras, 7 or so serpae tetras, and a SMALL catfish like a bumblebee cat. You would need to include some driftwood for the bristlenose, and you...

Guys- they're asking about leaves from the type of tree known as a "live oak".
Yes, live oak leaves should be fine. Just be sure they aren't covered in pesticides or anything.

Give it lots more hidey-holes. If that doesn't work, you may want to return the shrimp before it jumps out or concusses itself.

Go with the other place. This one is a bad idea, most likely. And avoid the baby plecos, they'll get too large. A bristlenose pleco would be an option if you're willing to feed it algae wafers.

You may want to look around this place. Rainbow gravel in display tanks is never good, and I'd be a bit leery of any place that has several redtail cats. Also, the low water level isn't good. Does...

The cherry shrimp are going to be food unless they're absolute full size, and even then I think they'll be in trouble. Congo tetras will eat them and bristlenose might try it.
