I have decided to finally do something with an old 10 gallon I've had for a while. As of right now it has 1 piece of spider wood, a sorry looking crypt wendetii, 2 anubias nana petite, gravel, and a small sponge filter.
In the future, I hope for this to be a show tank that I can pull from every month or so to sell to my LFS. I want to get some vallisneria, rotala rotundafolia, and some other green mid/background plant. In terms of livestock I was thinking white clouds and some cherry shrimp.
In terms of questions I would like to know if it would be possible to keep up with the background plants, and if the shrimp would eat the fish eggs.

I have kept 6-7 white clouds and 2 Amano shrimp together in a 10g for a while now.
It's a great tank.

Shrimp will eat just about everything, they are scavengers so yes they will eat eggs like snails and fish.

Ok thank you. I guess I'll focus on establishing the tank before I worry about breeding.
I have had red eyed tetra fry in a tank only 3 months old that grew to adults but it is best to wait until you tank is fully established which is usually 6 months or longer. White cloud minnows are hardy and good beginners fish and look nice. I heard people refer to them as the poor mans neon. I wish my neon were as hardy as they are. I also read that they are much easier to breed than my tetras. Good luck.
