just a quick question though...more of a clarification...

I have a generic rectangular 10 gal with two cherry barbs, an oto, and a black kuhli loach...and the site told me I was 68% stocked...so I put in for 4 cherry barbs and 4 kuhli loaches plus the oto and it says that it will be 98% stocked...so...seriously...I can add five more fish to this tank...with four already in it??? (because if I can my lonely little loach and cherry barbs will love it!)

Actually it sort of is.

Footprint is the dimension you will see if you look at your aquarium from the top. Think of it as a foot for the aquarium.

So that sounds like it is a common 10g tank.

At the end of the day it is up to you. More heavily stocked tanks are less stable and requires higher maintenance. Smaller tanks are also less stable as well.

I've seen people who stocked their 10g at around 150% level and accuse me that the app is wrong too since they have been doing this for years, so clearly that is possible too....
