29 gallon aquarium

Hello, i was just curious as to if my stocking was right, and if i could fit any more comfortably. Atm I have

male betta
3 dalmation mollies
2 bumblee gobys
3 otos
common pleco(ill buy him a new tank when he gets too large)
and a dwarf frog.

My gobys dont seem to be territorial and the kind I have is more suited to freshwater. Just seems like most of my tanks "swimming space" isnt being used. The betta hangs out at the top he seems quite peaceful, i can hardly get him to flare. Otos pleco gobys and frog are always either on the bottom or hiding.

Thanks much.

Mollies can be aggresive and become fin nippers. Adding more dainty fish with them could lead to big problems. Rosey barbs might hold thier own with them. As for the rest of them, as long as you don't see any problems with territory or aggression then they should be good. Watch for signs of stress to make sure they are all getting along.

yeah i havent seen any chasing or fin nipping. My betta does seem kinda odd he hardly swims around hes either hiding at the top or bottom under plants..is that natural? Also, the only problem i ever see is the mollies nibbing on the algae disks, no nipping though, just kinda pushing i guess. haha. greedy little mollies :)

I don't think it is ooverstocked nor at capacity yet. Some mid level fish could be added but make sure the mollies don't get nippy. Also, make sure the mollies stay in good health as sometimes they keep just fine in pure fresh water sometimes they needs brachish. I think it depends on how they were kept and raised.

any mid water fish suggestions? they were bred in a freshwater tank and kept that way at the pet store...so i believe that means they will be suited quite fine for my tank?

thanks again
