Hey everyone! Noobie lurker here in the final steps of putting my tank together.

I'm looking for some plant and fish ideas. I like bright colors and would like to have at least 1 school of fish. I'm planning on some carpeting, most likely dwarf baby tears. I'm also going to try and get my hands on some blue (cherry?) shrimp.

Tank specs:
55g - Open top
48" Finnex Ray 2
API Flistar XP-L
3" of black Activ Flora
Jager 300W Heater (Overkill?)
Paintball CO2 (Will most likely upgrade in the future)
Will also be fertilizing, but I'm still researching this

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Thanks for the help!
