10 gallon?

I have a aquaclear 30 on my ten gallon with a suitable heater (cant remember how many watts but it does fine), and an extra air tube. I also have 6-7 plants in there.
I plan on getting
7 neon tetras
2 honey sunset gouramis
2 power blue dwarf gouramis
Is that overstocked, If it isnt, what bottom feeder should i get.

because of the added filtration, you should be fine. just keep the ac30 on the high side, and youre good to go

I would IMO say no on the pleco (bottom dweller).... I like to be more cautious with fish. I would just stick with what you have...

75 gallon
1 pleco
1 OB Peac0ck
1 Yellow Lab
1 Blue Peac0ck
1 Greshakei
1 Red Peac0ck
1 Acei
1 Chailosi
1 Flameback
1 Rock Kribensis
1 CAE

20 gallon
2 female bettas
6 emerald green cories

2 dogs Diesel and Hummer!

you should get a gravel vacuum to pick up the waste and forget about the bottom feeder

I agree with aspects on doing gravel vacs. You're already at your stocking limit as is.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
