wait how many fish do you have in your 26 g tank total?
so if I am reading this correctly you have:
10 barbs (golden and cherry)
with a ton of plants in a 26 gallon? Not overstocked at all IMO.
but if you have 14 fish in one tank isnt that sort of over stocked just curious?
Swimming behaviors also play a large part. My tanks are overstocked according to those "calculators", but allowances are made for what space in the tank the fish use. A tank of nothing but bottom dwellers, while not overstocked according to the calculators, would feel very overstocked to the fish using that piece of real estate.
I would agree, possible territoriality should also be taken into consideration as well.
yeahh those calculators always tell me im over stocked its stupid loll but yeah that makes total sense i never thought of it like that. But i have 4 fish in my 29 gallon hqi bio-cube. 1 is a 6 line wrasse and the other 3 are blue green chromis..I believe those are just rock or reef dwellers so thats not over stocked for swimming room right? and if thats not then i wanna get another 1 or 2 fish but obv i would get bottom dwellers n that would be okay right?
