Cold water nano planted...?

Has anyone tried a cold-water planted nano?

I have cycled a small tank (25L/6gallon) and have 16W of light and a huge external filter (recycled from my 'normal' planted tank) and I'm looking to stock it pretty soon. I was thinking of a shoal of white cloud minnow but I'm a bit stuck about algae eaters. Are there any small cold water algae eaters?

Any other info would be welcome too - i can't find much on the web at all! I'm trying my tropical plants in it at the moment (vallis, sag and crypts) and hope that they should do OK at room temp?

Oh, and I have lots of red shrimps in my planted tank - will they survive in a room temp tank?

Thanks in advance

If your shrimp are red cherry shrimp then they will be fine at room temp.
