I've got a 10 gallon tank. I call it an 8 gallon because of the rocks in it. It's heavy flow, planted tank. I'm looking for fish that I could have in there. I was thinking maybe ember tetras. Ideas/recommendations?

I see nobody has answered you yet. I haven't kept embers but maybe some neocaridina shrimp would be nice. I wouldn't get cherry shrimp, too similar in color to the embers. But maybe blue or yellows would be nice. I had a heavily planted 10g RCS tank I loved! But I chose pygmy rasboras (maculata) & could barely tell the difference between them & the shrimp for both size & color. Green shrimp may blend in too well with plants. I was not successful with caridina shrimp the 1 time I tried black bees, neos seem much easier to keep.
