Don't change a thing!!! Tank looks unreal. I'd go with some celestial pearl danios IMO. A group of five would suffice in a 4.8g.

CPD or Galaxy Rasboras. Btw, if your schooling fish is too big, they won't be schooling much in smaller tanks.

Oh also, I noticed that you do have shrimps. In my experience with all tetras that I had, they would nip, even eat my shrimps. Don't be fooled by the size, they're basically small pirana .......hahahah

Hmm...I thought Tetras are quite timid though...But yea, I should look for smaller fish. They do seem too large for my tiny tank.

Strangely enough...I don't get much comments on how the tank looks like, what I can change and stuff like that...

Look into a trio of clown killifish. I keep them with my yellow neo shrimp and they don't even eat the very small young shrimp. And as a bonus they are really cool little fish.

Photos taken two weeks after initial set-up















Green Neon Tetras added and I love them!
I also added a lid on it so that I don't have to rescue the Amanos...

Let me know what you think about it!

The main reason why they aren't swimming at a higher level is that the light is too bright...but if it's not bright enough, the dwarf baby tears won't grow.
