Stocking my 75G

Thinking of what I should stock my tank with...

5-10 Amano shrimp.

10-20 Sakura Shrimp Or the reddest ones I can afford anyways =P

25 Celestial Pearl Danios.

4-5 Nerite Snails

10-12 Horned Nerite Snails (because they are smaller)

2-3 Assassin snails (Not sure if they will be ok with my other snails but I have a few nuisance snails I want to keep in check)


I want everything to be as small as possible. The CPD's are the pretties small fish I could find.

Stocking this tank. Would I be safe to add all my snails and shrimp at once? The Bio Load on these cant be much. Wait couple weeks. Then add the Danios maybe 12 and then 3-4 weeks add the rest?


What other fish would you add? Would you replace anything I have with something else. Money isnt to big of an issue so don't let price stop you from suggesting it!

Peace,
Josiah

I feel as if though small fish and shrimp would look pretty empty in a 75g if that's all you have.

I feel that smaller fish, shrimp and plants will give it a sense of scale making the landscape look larger. Maybe this idea of mine won't work on a 4ft wide tank but that's the idea.

Also the reason I added Amano shrimp was due there love for algae. How are the cherry shrimp when it comes to algae? I would prefer only one species of shrimp or a "nicer looking" shrimp than the Amano's.
