Thanks Lupin. I ran the numbers again and realized that I had neglected to include the Kuhlis in my last bioload estimate. With the Threadfins at 1"/gallon, the minifish and kuhlis at 2"/gallon (small on the one hand, incredibly skinny on the other), and the cherry shrimp at 4 shrimp/gallon, I come out with an equivalent bioload of 17 1/2" at the outset, 25 1/4" at max size, out of 30" equivalent capacity for a heavily planted tank.

Should work. The only thing I worry about in that tank is that the kuhlis will hunt down and eat any baby shrimp, but such is life. I can always set up a 2.5 for a breeding colony if I want one.
