My plan right now it to order fish for two of my new tanks (Already cycled)

My first question is can a freshwater clam be houses with guppies and African dwarf frogs?

The first tank is going to have:
1 Freshwater Clam
1 Blonde African Dwarf Frog
1 Standard African Dwarf Frog
2 Kohaku Guppies
2 Zebra Netirata Snails
Is this overstocked for a 2.5 gallon

The second tank is going to have:
2 Chocolate Cherry shrimp
2 Zebra Nerita Snails
2 Red Cherry Shrimp
1 Bloody Mary Shrimp
1 Orange Bee Shrimp
1 Blue Velvet Shrimp
Is this overstocked for a 1.8 gallon?

The 2.5 gallon has live plants
The 1.8 Gallon currently is not set up yet (I am doing all of this later but I want to know now so that I can prepare)

Very good thank you. I just finished setting up the 1.8 gallon. I used water from the two tanks that are already cycled and a filter with bacteria in it. The tank has live plants and already ready for fish. They arrive on Tuesday. My 2.5 gallon is also already prepared and I decided to get 2 more zebra nerita snails for my 5 gallon. So excited for them to get here. They ship tomorrow.

I am not sure I make an excel chart a few months ago. I think this might be too much now that I've done some more research. Here it is though.

Yes, the only problem i have thought about with that chart is the fish can go with the other fish fine but when they are all together at once there might be a problem. Thats why I am probably going to create a new one. I think some of the stuff on it is valid though.

Well it sound like you need a 100 gallon and a new tank for the puffer.

Yup pretty much. I hope to someday have the 100 gallon. I will probably end up with another tank for the puffer knowing my fish tank addiction. lol
