hatchetfish compatibility... or silver dollars

This is a discussion on hatchetfish compatibility... or silver dollars within the Freshwater and Tropical Fish forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> I agree, no flying fish without a top. Aqadvisor is a very conservative stocking guide, which is good. But "100%" is not anywhere near ...

I agree, no flying fish without a top.

Aqadvisor is a very conservative stocking guide, which is good. But "100%" is not anywhere near being overstocked.

That's weird because when I choose 55 gal from the list, it automatically puts in the dimensions (it says the height is 21 rather than 24 though like i thought).
I just did the whole thing again and I still got 74%...

I think you were looking maybe at filtration capacity ? Look two lines below that and it'll tell you aquarium stocking level .. Which is 107% . Personally I see nothing wrong with stocking a bit over 100% as long as your fish are compatible .


I'll say though ... Amano shrimp will eventually be eaten by the DG or the angel . Or even the serpae tetra.

To be honest, I think European stocking levels tend to be far more conservative than US ones, I know many people are shocked over here by the stocking recommended on Aqadvisor (as in being way too high). I think it is just one of those grey areas that shows a real a divide between the opposite sides of the Atlantic....we can't even agree on the volume of a gallon

I remember one of our members from the Netherlands (I think) was concerned about putting their betta in less than a 10 gallon tank. It was a 7 gallon tank IIRC. They wanted to make sure that that was big enough.

Yep, that is pretty much the recommendation over here. I can understand why stocking figures are lower as it leaves a bigger margin of error but they can be carried too far (45l minimum for a Fighter is just ridiculous to my mind). I had a play with Aqadvisor and it tends to tie in with my own thoughts on stocking so I ain't as bad as most Brits . Mind you, we still have the other extreme of people sticking a Red Tail Cat in a three foot tank.
