Charles, did you use the media of your 10 gallons tank filter? If not, you're experiencing New Tank Syndrome. You may have mini cycles. Try checking your ammonia and nitrites regularly.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

What loaches? This one?
Dwarf Loach (Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki)

If so, it's ok. 12 guppies should be fine.
Charles, you have to wait until next week comes and buy the fish in 3-4 in numbers as you are adding them too fast.

7.6 is IMO not too high. It's fine.

Add them gradually. Buying in threes would be a good idea otherwise you are adding them too fast while the tank is establishing. Your tank may still be experiencing mini cycles.

P.S. Pls post only once each time. Simply edit your post and add more infos to your post.:)

ummm about them loaches based on my picutres my future stock would be okay right? my future stok is
10 guppies,
4 neon tetras,
10 ghost shrimps,
2 bristlnose plecos,
4+ snails (dont know if there are more had one but found 3 more (came with my long plants)) and
2 loaches (these small 1 1/2 inchers at my lfs (petland)).
would that be overstocked? would it be crowded should i take out some plants or decor?

they are all in my tank except for the 10 guppies and 2 loaches. ill sell my mollies to make room for them. wat do you think? if other mods see this wat do you guys think? i find that your opinions are quite exquisite and have a flair of expertise :D
