Hello all this is my first post i just found this site and it looks informative. Ok heres the rundown. I have a 55 gallon aquarium, an aqua clear filter for a 70 gallon tank running, i use silica sand as a substrate. This tank has been running for quite some time( ie just under a year). I also run an air stone as well as have several live plants and about 100 wtts of light.
This is my question do you think i am over stocked?
I have the following fish, 8 under 1 inch Bronze Cory
, 2, 1 inch peppered cory, 1, 2 inch Clown Pleco
, 1, 5 inch farowella, 1, 6 inch Weather Loach
, 1 khuli loach, 1, 1 1/2 inch yo yo loach, 7 neon tetras, 2, 1 inch black skirt tetras, 1 dwarf neon gurami, and 2 ottos.
Also keep in mind i do clean my tank once a week. as well as the ussual tests for ammonia ect.
I havent had a problem per say with sick fish , or any ammonia or nitrate related issues. I just wonder if i shouldnt get another tank for some of the guys or find them a new home. i dont plan on adding any new fish to this tank either so this isnt a can i cram in another one question. i am also running a couple smaller tanks but couldnt transfer any of these guys to them. since the extra tanks house aggressive or predatory fish.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
