Glass shrimp might get eaten, and RTBS are territorial if u don't add them in last, but aside from that it should work!

I would personally choose golden barb, zebra danio or neon tetra, and have more of one school of that species than several small schools of a lot of different species. Other than that, yes it's fine. Just make sure to make caves for the rts.

Some what agree with the above. Zebra Danios stay near the top, so they wouldn't affect the mid-schoolers. But a large group of either Gold barbs or Neons instead of two small groups would be gorgeous.

But two groups would add diversity, and your tank is large enough to handle it. So whatever floats your boat.

We're going with the diversity just for the prettiness more than anything else and we do have the space for it. At the moment we have a shoal of 8 neon tetras in there hopfully picking up the Platies in two weeks. The tank was fully fishless cycled already. We're abandoning the idea of shrimps it seems they'll just be eaten.
