In case anyone was wondering......

juwel t5 lighting
hagen natural co2 x 2

24 neons
5 corys
5 amano shrimp
1 bristlenose plec (did a fantastic job cleaning the tank)

ultimate aim for the tank is 36 neons, a fe more corys and shrimp. nothing else is planned to be added.

Not sure about propagating but a good ground cover for that tank would be DHG IMO. HC is a bit small for a tank of that size. I might suggest some blyxa japonica as well
