1 inch per gallon is am 'old wives tale'.

Assuming a 27 gallon (I'm horrible at changing litres to gallons), and an average filter, then your tank is fully stucked.

Keep up the water changes and you'll be fine.

cheers i was thinking about it all day as i wanted to do it right

If you haven't stocked the tank yet, there are some concerns regarding the Ph preferences of the fish... Livebearers prefer alkaline, and tetras prefer acidic.
