10 Gallon Question
I have a 10 gallon tank with a Dwarf Gourami and 4 pygmy corys. I want to add either 2 more pygmy corys and 6 neon tetras or 2 pymy corys and 2 dwarf frogs (Since I've read that both pygmy corys and tetras need at least 6 to be happy). My girlfriend wants the neon tetras but I'm worried that they will cause overcrowding. Will either or both of these set-ups be ok? Any advice appreciated!
I would think the neons would be ok. Both them and the pygmy cories have very small bioloads so won't push the tank too hard. Just keep up with your water changes and i think you'll be just fine. I wouldn't add both the frogs AND the neons though. But neons and the extra 2 cories shouldn't be a problem.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
I would go with the neons in a group of six or more. As far as overcrowding, everyone with the exception of flamingcod is correct. Some people might consider my tank overcrowded with the number and size of fish I have but by doubling my filtering and doing weekly water changes my fish are very healthy, happy and vibrant.
