I am new to aquariums and I want to find out if I've now overstocked my tank.
I bought a 10 gallon tetra half moon aquarium for our betta. (We cycled it for a month) Then we added 2 nerite snails 2african dwarf frogs and 5 neon tetras.
We have changed the filter to a Fluval U2. (We have a large piece of Mopani driftwood that the spray bar hits so there is very little water movement).
We have quite a few live plants too (s/p? On most) Java fern, Anubis nano, Anubis (something else), anarachis?, Vesuvius something, and amazon sword we use flourish twice a week and all the plants are thriving and growing like crazy! We do 20% water changes every other day (w/seachem prime) and we use purigen instead of charcol and use the fluval biomedia.
Now, my husband took my son to the LFS and has added 1cherry shrimp, 4amano shrimp, 2 more nerite snails (because we never see the other two...ugggggh) and 5 celestial danios! They have all been living happily for about two weeks now. Hasn't "seemed" to make much of a difference..... I thought I would see a huge ammonia spike but not yet... And I use API master test kit.
Believe me he has been properly scolded and warned not to buy a single fish until we have another tank ready to go!!! But I want to know if you guys think this is way too much for our10 gallon to manage long term?
By the way, I just moved stuff around in the tank so it's cloudy, it's usually super clear.
Thanks in advance!
