Not overstocked at all. On your other post, I suggested returning the Penguin and getting the Emperor instead.

When using the filter, cut up a net and secure it over the filter intake. This will prevent any cherry shrimp babies (in the future) to not get sucked up the filter. I did this with my Emperor 280 and 400 filter intakes, but I used silicone to keep the netting in place, which look like this...

NP. I can never find RCS (Red Cherry Shrimp) at Petco, Petsmart, or any other LPS/LFS. I can only find them through other other fish keepers, especially those with planted tanks.

Well i got ghost shrimp instead. Tiny little things and i thought it would be cool when you can see them digest their food.
