When i finish planting the tank some time this week, im going to get more fish. I'm ging to get one more albino and leopard cory. I was also thinking of moving my BN pleco into the tank, is that a good idea?

I would want to verify that the pleco will leave your shrimp alone. I honestly do not know if they are compatible but it's the kind of thing I question.

BN plecos hardly bother anything. I have kept ghost, bamboo and amano shrimp with my BN plecos, and they have been fine.
