Stocking Suggestions

I am just about ready to stock my Fluval EBI 7.9 Gallon. I am considering doing shrimp in this one.

Any suggestions on what shrimp to start with (its my first shrimp tank) and also can I keep fish in the tank with them? Are any species better than others to live with shrimp?

You can never go wrong with cherry shrimp For other ideas of what kind of shrimp are out there go to speedie's powerseller topic (link below).

If its your first time with shrimp start with cherries than eventually work your way to crystals

If you want to stock fish with your shrimp, I suggest ones with small mouths. No gouramis or bettas, and even my mollies liked to hunt shrimp. You can't really keep schooling fish in the Ebi since there isn't that much space, either. I keep guppies with my shrimp, and the guppies rarely nip at the shrimp. Also people keep corydoras and otocinclus with shrimp without any problems.

I moss be in love
