Likewise, I would be interested in a group purchase of the micro-rasboras and dwarf cories. I was already considering corydoras pygmaues, and Hemigrammus amandae. However, the micro-rasboras would work great too.
I have been researching shrimp, and have found several threads on shrimpnow, and other sources. that refer to the following as shrimp compatible. However, the hardcore shrimpers take the stance that no fish are truly shrimp safe. They state then even ottos will accidentally trample juveniles, and micro-rasboras might nip at the shrimp. I believe its one of those trade offs you have to live with in the fish keeping world.
corydoras" and "ancristrus" and any "boraras"
"galaxy danio" or: "Paedocypris progenetica"
"Gobiopterus species cf. panayensis"
Sorry to sidetrack your thread Alex. I'm no help on suggestions for the shrimp setup. However, in regards to lighting for the setup what kind of plants did you have in mind for this tank? It sounds like a great project, and I will be following along.
