ok,

my tank is established after a month now. my plants are growing well, everything is eating, they all have thier own little territories even in a little tank and noone seems to be getting picked on or crowded out.

parameters:
PH:7.4
temp: 78-80*
no AMMO or nitrite
nitrate 20-25

lighting is 2.4 per gallon
at the moment, the fish/invertebrates are
3 black skirt tetras
3 glow-lites
5 Cory cats
1 minnow that i caught in a local swamp (was supposed to be food but he lived, oh well)
3 black mystery snails (and a few babies)
1 red clawed crab

basically, i want to add a few cherry shrimp. am i at a threshold of having too many animals, or do you think 2 or 3 shrimp would be fine?
i wouldn't be opposed to re-locating some of the snails, since they accomplish much the same as the shrimp will.

:help:

the crab mostly keeps to himself, and only comes out of his driftwood cave when i feed or to defend it against Cory cats.

do crabs mess with shrimp alot?
