Tetra Tanks :)

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know the outlines for 2 south american community biotopes. In my 38 gallon I'd have 1 twig cat, 5 pepper cory cats, 7 rummynose tetras, and 6 silver hatchetfish. Im my 20 gallon i'd have 1 clow pleco, 5 panda cory cats, and 7 cardinal tetras. Please respond with feedback. Thanks.

I would just up the groups for the rummys and hatchetfish. Both need more to be less stressed. I would not go below 12 for rummys, and 15 would be even better. The hatchets I would say 7-8; I have the Silver Hatchetfish, they are very social. Aside from this, looks fine.

Thanks Byron, the tank won't get too overcrowded with those additions though right?

No, not in my opinion. I actually went into why this is actually better on the bioload in another thread,

see my post #38.

Of course, I assume regular weekly partial water changes and live plants, or if you intend it, a more authentic biotope. This is covered in the linked thread too.

Alright thanks, I just thought the rule was 1 gallon per inch of fish, but it would be awsome to add more fish.
