4. Baby tears

6. some floaters

Co2:
Will not need it with the above plants

Fertilizers: None recommended

Lighting: Around ~2wpg

Shrimp: From easiest to hardest to keep

3. Tiger
4. Bee

My preference is Cherry and Tiger. It is a nice mix.

Any filter will need a foam intake guard so you may as well save yourself the bother with a hang on filter and go with a small foam internal.

The bio-load that shrimp place on a tank system is practically zero. You could have a hundred or more shrimp in that nano and never see a measurable nitrate/nitrite/ammonia spike. What they produce in waste product is easily taken care of by the plants if you do not overfeed.
