That’s a cool piece of decor.
I agree with above: the shrimp will give you a bottom population (and everywhere else), and keep fish to one single breed in a group, like the chilis. Another type of fish in there would not be as nice, to me, as 10 chilis. Behavior from a larger group is worth the limitation.
As others said, pygmy cories go everywhere. They’re all over the place in my 40b, including grazing at the surface under the duckweed, along the leaves of Aponogeton, and among the rock piles. They’re not bottom dwellers.
