I've been preparing a fancy 16 gallon tank for a week or so now, but I won't be ready for fish for another 2 weeks probably. It's planted (lots of plants!) and has a couple of pieces of drift wood. I have been back and forth on deciding what to stock it with and i still haven't really decided.
My original plan was a sorority of bettas, but I've decided against that. What I am decided on is definitely some cherry shrimp and maybe a couple of orange dwarf crawfish (already have one waiting in another tank).
For the fish though I am not decided. I like guppies, but then the endlers look like a good idea too, but no one recommends having both in a tank. I wanted to get anyone else's ideas down in this thread so when I have more or less a list to look at. I have spoken to a lot of you in the chat room and don't remember all the suggestions I got. This way I can get it down on paper and start researching!
16 gallons, dual 3-stage filters
Black substrate, gravel like
pH 7.8ish (It may go down slightly with drift wood, but not really counting on it.)
