Another stocking question
I've upgraded my 75-litre to a 165-litre. It currently has 6 platies (5 adults, one baby), 6 pristella tetras, 5 cory trilineatus, 3 cory habrosus, and an apple snail. I asked before about other different fish I could have, but I've decided to just stick with the same types that I already have. I'm going to get some more cory habrosus (I'm thinking 4 more), but how many more of my other fish could I get? Do I have room for more big cories as well? Thanks for any help.
43.58 gallon tank
6 platies (5 adults, one baby),
6 pristella tetras,
5 cory trilineatus,
3 cory habrosus,
4 more habrosus cory
black skirt tetras since they are larger they can be the tanks center piece
killies or rainbow fish for colors
How big do the black skirts get? My platies are big, they are my "main fish" in the tank. I thought I'd just get more of the same fish so I'd have bigger groups.
Consider your pristellas too. I have a group of 15 in my 55gallon and they look fantastic. Especially if they're not feeling super comfy and school up. That's mainly after I've done a water change or put my hand in the tank though. :lol:
Yes, I was thinking of increasing my pristellas to 9, but I'm really not sure how many fish overall I can fit in my tank. I was thinking of getting 4 more habrosus (to bring it up to 7), getting 3 more pristellas (to 9) and another platy. Would that be ok, and could I get more big cories?
you'de be surprised they get pretty big for tetras around 2.5 inches
