Yet Another Stocking Question...
 
OK here it goes..I have a 29gal and:

8 Neons
6 Harlequin Rasboras
3 Cories
4 Honey Gouramis
2 Otos
1 Bamboo Shrimp
3 Ghost Shrimp

What do you think? Is it way overstocked? Its plated and well filtered...

Thanks for all the help!!!

LOL I was just checking I don’t know much about fish. I saw the shrimp thing and thought they were different. Sorry about that. I am getting the same size of tank. So may be I would give the same combination a try.

being planted and well filtered always helps. doing regular partial water changes also keeps the water in better condition. i definitely wouldnt add anymore mind you. as long as you are looking after your fish and keeping up your tank maintanence i dont see any problems just now. none of your fish are big waste producers as far as i know. make sure you are testing your water weekly for amonia and nitrites/nitrates as these can become unstable mroe easily the more stocked the tank is :D

Shrimp are pretty much negligible on the bioload. Though Ghost Shrimp do get pretty big (up to 4"). Bamboo Shrimp (aka Wood Shrimp) are pretty fun. I've got a number of them myself.

You might be pushing it on too many fish for the tank. How big are all of your fish right now?

Right now all my fish except the neons are juveniles...so really none of my fish are over an 1.5 inches in length.

Thanks for all the input!!!

The stocking list is fine. The owner can add more neons as she wishes. Neons hardly would contribute to the bioload. Add 3 more cories if you wish.
