Hi guys

I’ve got a 40 gallon tank (50 US) 189litres and I want to know if I currently have an over stocked tank or if I’m even or even have some room for more.

I know the rule is 1inch fish per gallon but would like to get ur opinion as I would like to get 5-10 more neons if possible
ive got:

6 cherry barbs
9 copper rasboras
2 platies (juvenile)
15 neon tetras
1 gold german dewarf ram cichilid

I’ve currently got a all pond solutions 1000IF internal filter.
Property Window Purple Cabinetry Interior design
Water Plant Vertebrate Botany Pet supply

Yes, that would be a tad bit over-stocked.
The one inch of fish per gallon doesn't really exist, and it's just, like, for people to be like "ok, my tank is [blank] gallons, so I could fit [blank] fish, but the reasonable amount is [blank] amount of fish."
your school is pretty big already. I'd recommend adding a natural hide for the cichlid and some live plants, other than that your tank is pretty good ig!
