Snails/Shrimp for Community Planted
I have a 29g planted with 8 Harlequin Rasbora, 5 Black Neon Tetra, 1 Blue Gourami, and 3 Emerald Catfish. I recently found some unidentified hitch hiker snails (they are itty bitty babies) that must of come from the last couple plants I got.
I would love to get some shrimp and/or "proper" snails for the tank. I heard the snails help greatly with the substrate and the shrimp will nibble on the particles clinging to the leaves etc.
The only options I have at any nearby LFS are ghost shrimp, mystery snails, or zebra nerite snails.
What kind of snails and shrimp would do well in that community tank? I was thinking some red cherry shrimp and malaysian trumpet snails. Or should I just go head and grab a dozen ghost shrimp and a couple of mystery snails?
