4 Sterba Corys, 2 Ghost Shrimp, and 1 Vampire Shrimp. I also have 1 male fantail betta that occupies all levels of the tank, but usually can be found near the top. The water is neutral, as my tap water's pH is 7. It is not planted. I would say the current is not strong, but not weak. I have two HOB filters, except one is a nano filter, so it doesn't generate that strong a current. The reason why I have two working in conjunction is because the main filter, the AquaClear50, is positioned to the left of the tank. To avoid stagnating one side, and to improve aeration and gas exchange, I added a nano filter to the far right. Why not just CENTER the AC50? Because of the way my hood is designed (stupid people imo), there's only one slot large enough, and it's to the far left. I'm not about to take cutters to my hood either. :/
Hope that helps. Thanks!
