Hi all,

Iwant to know what you guys think abour my bioload and if you think it can handle more fishies...
Hers is my setup;

Planted with fast growing stems... Anacharis, Ludwigia repens, Elodea and a couple of others that i havent find thet species yet...
55g 48"*13"*21"
Fluval303 filter
Fishes. 3penguin tetra, 9neon tetra, 5platy and 7fry, 5golden barbs and a chinese algea eater.

The CAE is very freindly with the other occupants and actualy dont mind to share his food pellets with the other fish. I often see barbs and neon sharing the meal with the cae all eating on the same pellet at the same time.... I dont think he will be a problem. He is now almost 5inlong and he behave very well.

My water so far is always 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, but idont have the nitrate test kit and since my tank is planted and i do 20-25%wc with substrat cleaning every week, i dont see nitrate being an issue...

What do you guys think of all that and what fish would do well in there?
Any comments suggestion wellcome!
Thnks all.

Thanks for the replys...

I will follow your wisdom and higher up my current shoaling numbers.... Happier fish and better looking tank...
Also will run to my lfs and get my hand on a nitrate kit.

As far as the CAE goes, he really is one... I will take according measure if aggression rises. I did read the whole article on this species and know what to expect... If it happens *knock on wood* ;-)
He sure is a cool fish and swims like a shark.. I love it!

Thanks guys.
