CPDs and Microdevarios in planted Fluval Edge


I have a planted Fluval Edge with some drift wood, a few Red Cherry Shrimp and a wild snail that appeared one day. I added 5 CPDs a few days ago and they did their characteristic hide-in-the-greenery thing. For such a small tank, somehow they pretty much disappeared whenever I entered the room. Yesterday I added 5 tiny microdevario kubotai. I know this is getting to the upper limit of stocking a 6-gallon tank, but so far so good with ammonia and nitrite levels (after feeding them a couple of times).

The CPDs suddenly came to life when I added the much less shy microdevario kubotai - they're out of the vegetation and scooting about, even though the tiny microdevarios spend quite a lot of time chasing them. I'm feeding them all Hikari micro pellets. Any advice for keeping my little tank happy and balanced? Are the Hikari micro pellets enough, or should I be feeding them other things as well?

All advice greatly appreciated!
