The inside measurements are 59cm x 30cm x water level 28cm 49560 which is 49.56 liters or 13 Gallons
but I have about 6 KG or live rock and 1KG CC and pump and other items of which displaced's about 1.2 liters
which leaves my tank with about 12.77 Gallons

if my working out is correct.

I think you will appreciate the "cluttered" look when you begin adding fish. The more rock the better in a small tank to help break up territory and make the fish feel more at home.

I agree, add more rock. This would be a great time to use cable ties to secure the live rock together also, which can be handy when building overhangs and caves.

Hoover and Dyson? Classic! I bet Dyson does a better job than Hoover.
