Stocking level and fish types
Hi Folks,
I presently have a 85 litre tank consisting of 7 tetras (4 cardinal & 3 neons). I have 3 mollies,2 guppys (Male and female) and also 3 bronze catfish (corys). I have a plant also but not exactly sure of the type however it seems fine. In terms of stocking levels I am comfortable with the tank however I would like to know what other type of fish I could potentially put in this community tank without any ill effect to the fish already in there. Like I said Im unlikely to put another fish in however would like to know my options. Thanks.

I would add at least 4 more cardinals and neons, and 2 more corys..

Tetras and corys are schooling fish, and don't feel comfortable in groups of less than 6-8..

What are you using for filtration? How many plants in your tank?

What are your water parameters?

You should be able to slowly add those fish, if your water quality and bio-filtration can keep up..
