Ghost shrimp and pygmy corydoras?

Hi, I am thinking about setting up a 10 gallon tank. It will have marbled hatchetfish, ember tetras, pygmy corydoras, and sparkling gourami. I am wondering if ghost shrimp would be a nice addition to the tank. If you want to read the original thread it is here...

I had my dwarf corys in a tank with ember tetra, and adult ghost shrimp and had no problem with them. I am not sure about the sparkling gourami and the shrimp as I have not had them before. I have had pointed out to me by Byron that the corys may eat the young if they are small enough which is why I will be moveing the corys back into the tank with the embers because they are right now in with my cherry shrimp which are alot smaller than the ghost. I plan on redoing the tetra tank when my shippment of plants come in this week then I will moveing the corys back over.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.
