Sounds a bit heavily stocked, but hey, it could still work. Ive successfully kept heavily stocked tanks for years. Just not with cichlids, I'm not game to try that atm.

I've got a temporary RTS inhabitant at the moment. Ugh. At least the DG is keeping him in line

Well, my tank is in my husbands hands for two weeks while I'm in Florida. It's absolutely grossly overstocked even by my standards until I figure out what to do with the inhabitants I ended up taking in from an in-law. Current stock is as follows -

1 DG
1 Red-Tail Shark
1 Nerite (couldn't find him when I was acclimating the otos)
3 Ghost Shrimp
3 Otos
3 Female Bettas
3 Platies
5 Cherry Barbs

Somehow after being stocked this heavily for a week, I am still reading 0s across the board. There is no way my plants are handling that bioload. I instructed my husband to test the water every Tuesday and Saturday and do a water change if nitrates ever went above 10. I pre-measured Prime and everything for him.

It's been a while since I last updated. I just came back from a 2 week vacation to baby platies, baby shrimp and cherry barb eggs everywhere. Still haven't seen nitrates but my husband did a 50% WC a week ago. Lost the baby bettas but have an adult female thriving in the tank. Also lost an oto yesterday morning but the others are fat and happy.

Within the month I will be moving my RTS to my 20 gallon while I figure out what to do with him.
