Is my tank overstocked..
I was just wondering if my tank is at its full capacity(Over stocked/Under stocked)...It is a 100l but with plants and gravel about 85-90l Because i really wanted to get some corys..
10 Neon Tetra's
5 Platy's 1:4
4 Mollies ( 1 adult male, and 3 baby males)
1 Opaline Gourami
1 Bristlenose Plecostumus
1 Red Tailed Black Shark
3 Male Guppys
4 Ghost Shrimp
2 Amano Shrimp / Yamato Shrimp
I do either a 40-50% water change or a few 20% WC a week.. ANd does with a few drops of prime and stress zyme.
It is planted.. Adding more plants soo.
The plants get root tabs once a month ( I know i know i need liquid fertalizer as well, hopefully getting some in a few days as the planst are dieing)
I feed a twice a day about pinch and a half. One day veg flakes, the other tropical. A algea wafer a day ( should i maybe put 2 in, becaus my bn pleco never seems to get at the one i put in and he is sortof eating my plants)
So would i be able to put 4-5 Panda Corydoras/ Julli Corydoras/ Armour Catfish/ Strebai Corydoras in and maybe 1-2 Swordtails.
Thanks again and sorry for the long post.
I wouldn't add any more fish. I think you are overstocked.
ok thank you not even the corys.. There were my origanal fish i wanted..
Well, Christmas is coming up..... Maybe Santa will bring you another tank:lol:
Lol not if my mum has anything to do with it! Is there anything i could maybe remove or do to get the corys??
Did you try AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor You can put in your tank size, filtration and critters and it will tell you what stocking and filtration levels you are at. It will also let you know if there are conflicts with the critters you have as well as tips on certain fish.
My tank is at 108% stocked and 125% filtration, but the stocking level is based on mature fish. I plan on mooving some to my big tank soon to fix the potential crowding.
I did use aqadvisor but i just wanted your thoghts..
Didnt you just get a little tank... cant remember size... could you move any fish over there?
It was only a gallon.. That tank didnt work out in the end.. Couldnt get the right temp.. And didnt want to spend £20 on a heater for such a small tank.. But i may take the plec back even though i love her but she seems to be eating my plants.. Definatley getting my corys and maybe 1 swordtail.. But they are all healthey and ther is no aggression issues..
