Tank Size Sufficient?
I was wondering if I might have overloaded this aquarium. It is a 20 gallon long tank with a sand bottom. It's mostly open, with one decent sized Anubias plant in the back, and a couple of aquarium ornaments. The tank has six neon tetras, five peppered cory cats, and three red velvet platys. Is this too big a load for this tank?
I don't plan on adding any more fish, and only recently added the platys because the cory cats are the only fish swimming thoroughout the entire tank. The neon tetras rarely leave the vicinity of the anubias plant, even when the aquarium light is off. They pretty much hover near the plant all the time except at feeding time, when they will move around the tank for food. Most of the time you wouldn't even know the tank contained tetras.
