    That is a broad list you are asking for hahhaah. Any of the other tetras would work for one thing. A single gourami could be put in there. Hatchetfish. All of the live bearers but stick to males. That is just what comes to mind.

    your oto would be much happier in a school. Their behavior changes drastically, they become a lot more active.

    I'm a fan of rasboras, I have a small school in my 30" tank and love them.

    +1 to sheamurai; 10-12 Harlequin rasboras would look good with your neons, also getting five more Oto's would not hurt ;-)

    Thanks guys, I know there's a lot of fishes haha
    But I am looking for 1 extra spieces that can live peacefully with my Red Cherry Shrimp and won't harm them? Right now the neons live with them and they walk around the tank and also shed their skin not at hidding spots so..

    Maybe like you said steeler the Harlequin Rasbora's should fit and not stress \ harm my shrimps?
    Also I just thought, what about adding school of 6-7 Rummynose Tetra + 5 more of neons and 1 oto? or instead of more neons ill buy some cory's? pack of 6?

    They'll do just fine with the shrimp.

    Ah. Yes rummies would be a good addition. The cories will be great as well. I'd get more than 1 oto though. Very low bioload and like to be in a group. Get five if you can/ feel like it.

    Rummys are great also but will swim in the same region as the neons, I suggested the Harleys because they will swim in the upper region, neither one will harm your shrimp as Compass said :)

    yeah I thought so, just wanted to be sure.
    Unfortunately the Harleys little "rare" at my town.. I had experience with the Red Zebra Danio and they always swim at the upper region and didn't harm the Japonica Amano Shrimp I had.
    What do you think about the Cherry shrimp and red zebra danio mix? of course I prefer the Harleys as my own opinion but as I said they may be little rare at my town's shop
