Stocking ideas for 35 gallon hex
 
Here is my current stock:

http://www.aqadvisor.com/AquStockIma...:200909300164:

Was hoping to add some shrimp next. Do I have to worry about them being eaten? One of my mollies was pregnant when I bought it and all of the fry got eaten. I don't have any live plants, but figured I'd get some fake grass/moss if I got shrimp to at least provide good cover for them.

Any other ideas for the future? I know I'm kind of limited with the design of this tank, so am open for input. I like the looks of the dwarf gourami, and maybe some cory catfish or glass catfish the help keep things clean along with the shrimp. Just trying to come up with a plan, I'd really like shrimp next, but willing to go with another cleaner if that's a bad idea for my setup. My water is just barely hard according to the last test I had the pet shop do.

Any advice or suggestions? I like the idea of the shrimp, but some corys are sounding appealing too in a way. They school up on the bottom right? Would a gouarami be fitting in this tank, or is it not a good shape/community for them?
