Are you really trying to say on a 45g I should ONLY stock the following?
8x Rummy nose (4 already in tank, wanna stock as soon as healthy)
5x Albino Cory ( already in tank not optional, will stock to 6 thou)
1x pleco (in tank already, not optional)
2x chinease algae eaters (in tank already, not optional)
And yes I'm aware of this. I know you don't rarely read any of my posts, but I'm more one of these type of people that infrom themselves first and pref planted naturals aquas
I'm using the Cascade 600, between that and the plants, plenty sufficient
