Question on stocking a 20gallon tank
Here are the fish I am wanting to put into it (will be added after tank is cycled etc.):
6 Glofish Tetras
10 Glofish Danios
Is this over stocked?
If not, suggestions?
The combination and number of fish is fine. It would be a good idea to get your water parameters. Do you have the type of light meant to show off their colors, like blue LED, or what ? My son has a glofish tank with the blue LEDs. Needless to say, live plants won't grow in that tank. It has glowing yellow, orange, purple, and red artificial plants. We use activated charcoal in the filter for that tank and change it every two weeks without fail. We also use an air pump for better gaseous exchange. If you intend to use normal light and perhaps add plants, that's a whole other story. Let us know your plans and water parameters.
It would be a good idea to test your tap water and make your fish decisions based on that. It's difficult to artificially adjust the water to match the fish. A 20 gallon glofish tank should be a lot of fun !
