Stocking a 9.2G Eheim Nano

I've setup my new 9.2G Eheim AquaStyle Nano ... it's fully planted and ready for more fish. I've already added a nice school of cory habrosus. I originally planned for only 6, but ended up getting 9 of them cause of how cheap I got them. It's amazing how small they are

I'm thinking of also adding a school of chili rasbora (boraras brigittae), maybe 8 or 10 of them. Would that be pushing the limit of the tank? I was also hoping to add a nerite snail for some algae control and possibly some crystal red shrimp. And if there's still room (which I doubt) I'd love an otto or two to help with more algae control.


P.S. In case anyone wants to mention the inch per gallon rule ... it doesn't really apply for such small fish cause all 9 of my tiny catfish (totalling about 6 to 8 inches of body length) have the same body volume as a 3 inch swordtail for example.

personally, i dont think that should be a problem at all. i've had 10 hasbrosus and 13 brigittae in a 2.5 gallon tank---fish did fine.
