So my stocking options are going to include some mix of the following.... amano shrimp, red cherry shrimp, neon tetras, gbr pair, nerites. What combination would you guys think would be a good mix?

The shrimp will end up been expensive food for the rams and neons. Some people claim to have luck with them, but from personal attempts at keeping both I always lost the shrimp.

I would say pick fish or shrimp, but if you want mix do then amanos and fish should work best.

I can agree I had a whole population taken out by one endler. Looks like these are my options...

A. Gbr pair, otos, nerites
B. Neons, amanos, otos, nerites
C. Amanos, Rcs, otos, nerites

Now just have to pick from these choices and how many I want. Such a hard decision

Please do a shrimp and snail community tank (option c).
Fish are great too, but I absolutely love how shrimp behave with their own kind:it's fascinating to watch tiny juvies scuttle around the tank.

I need to upload a video of my 20L during feeding...you wouldn't believe how comfortable they are with me poking around lol
