I am filling a 55-gallon freshwater tank.
I am planning to add group fish, schooling fish, like guppies and tetras. I am avoiding African Cichlids and solitary fish.
I am looking for additional, non-fish animals to add to the tank; crabs (hermit or otherwise) or shrimp or snails, for example. I want to avoid destructive animals.
What should I be looking to add? Is there anything I should explicitly avoid?
