New to the community, question about stocking and compatibility
 
Before I stock our 60g tank, I would like to run a stocking option by you to see if it would be okay to do.

I would really like to have some (1st choice)red cherry shrimp or (2nd choice)ghost shrimp, I was thinking of doing a carpet section of java moss, for the shrimp to help protect any fry that might happen and general protection for the shrimp.

I have a rubber nosed pleco in a 37g tank that I think I should move to the 60g would this be compatible?

10 x cory catfish or would this be to much fish at the bottom?

Would Black Phantom Tetras be compatible? I know certain tetras are compatible but I can not find anything about BPT and RCS being compatible. These would take care of the middle level swimming

I know Danios will be compatible so I was thinking 20+ or going with a few different schools of the danio species and having 5+ each. Examples being glofish,zebra,giant,white cloud. These would take care of the top level swimming?

Any other options would be great as we have plenty of time to make a decision. I look forward to seeing what you think.

over stocking isnt really the case but i would start off slow and then add more fish as you go,, black phantoms are fine, um 10 corys at start i wouldnt do, you can have them but start off with 6 maybe and then add the others , same with the danios gradually build the numbers up,, start off small then work your way up
