Is this over-stocking?
I have a single male betta, four African Dwarf Frogs and a Singapore Bamboo shrimp in a ten gallon tank, very well planted, filtered and heated with sand substrate. I've had the tank running for over two years now, and my newest addition, the Bamboo Shrimp, has done well in there over the last couple weeks. When I got her she was grey and black, the color of a rock, but now she's a nice dark brown/red color with a lovely yellow stripe.
I hear they like to be in pairs at the least, and I'd like to get a second one now that I see she's doing well. But would it be ok in a tank that small, even with so many plants? Eventually I'd like them to be in my 55 gallon planted community tank, but right now it's only a couple months old and probably wouldn't have enough food for them. I do supplement her anyways(just in case), with daphnia, dusted up algae and baby brine shrimp. She's grown well and seems to be happy. So would that be able to support all of them properly?
