Fluval Edge 6g nano

Hey guys I'm new here but I've been getting a lot of information for my tank from this forum

Right now this is my setup

2x freshwater clams
5x cherry shrimp
1x ghost shrimp
1x albino pleco
3x ramshorn snails
And a few other snails that's hitched rides on my plants

Java fern
Java moss

ZooMed nano 501 with prefilter spinge
Petco 100watt heater
Air stone
And a random brand nano c02 system from Petco

I also have driftwood and fluval shrimp stratum.

At the moment i plan on replacing the 21LED light with the 42LED version from the larger fluval edge. As for livestock I'm not sure. My albino pleco is from my buddy who breeds them so if he gets to big at 4" or 5" he's just going back to my buddy. I was thinking about getting a freshwater puffer but i know how aggressive they can be but part of me wants to try anyway. Freshwater fish bore me so if the fish don't work out this is turning into a critter tank with shrimp and micro crabs and something control the snail population. I'm not sure what other pants i want to add yet though

I have a second 3g tank that my gf keeps with 2x goldfish 2x dwarf frogs and a mystery tadpole. I was going to keep the dwarf frogs but they would drown in the edge at full water level. I may just end up keeping only the frogs in that tank

Guys care to give me some pointers? Anything i should consider

Can't see the tank at all

I'm interested in that co2 system, i'll have to go look at petco.

Also goldfish require much much larger tanks then anyone gives them credit for. They produce 4x the waste per inch of a normal fish and they get up to 12"

Unfortunate misconception of the hobby.

Look into whiteclouds for a small unheated tank, they look great and will be happier then the goldfish.

I have the same tank, but I cant see anything in your pictures. Would love to see more fluval 6gal.
You only have moss? then why the cO2?
I have a hard time taking pics of mine as well (glare, dark, etc), but I think you can still see more of it?
