I agree with everyone in this thread. You don't have room for those fish.
You think that your fish are doing "fine." You are devastatingly incorrect. If fish are kept in an environment that is too small for them, their growth will be stunted. Meaning, their bodies will quit growing. However, their internal organs won't.
Imagine that for a moment. Your stomach, heart, kidneys, etc growing larger and larger while your body cavity isn't. The organs just keep growing, pressing harder and harder against each other and the walls of the cavity. Kinda gives new meaning to the word pain, don't you think?
The people on here are all caring and experienced fishkeepers. No one is trying to be mean by telling you that your fish are wrong for your tank. It is a common mistake that I think most new fishkeepers make. We are telling you that so that you will have a happy, healthy, and beautiful aquatic environment that you can enjoy for many many years. Do yourself a favor, and open your mind. Your fish will greatly appreciate it.
