How much fish can I have in a 16 gallon tank?
Just got a 16 gallon tank for Christmas after just having some small setups for single bettas. It's been up a week already, with 4 zebra danios and a betta in it, everything's good so far but I was wondering if eventually I'll have any room for more fish. I mean going by that 1 inch of fish to 1 gallon thing, just the fish I have now when fully grown will about fill the tank, but it just seems a bit empty still, although I'm not happy with the danios not schooling like I thought they would, they just go off on their own most the time with a bit of chasing every now and then. I like catfish but I know there's none other than maybe a few cories that would do well even by themselves in this tank. It is planted if that makes any difference to allow more or less. Any thoughts?
