Author Topic: Fish tank stocking  (Read 1820 times)

Hi, I have a 20 gallon tank, it's been up and running for over a year. I have it quite heavily stocked with fish now. With 8 harlequins, 6 black skirts and a bristlenose pleco. I have anubias, moss balls and some other plants I don't know if they will last as it's low tech. Its a long story but I always try and do the best for my fish. I was thinking of adding one more dwarf gourami/ a German ram/ or 2 peacock gobys. But I am worried about over stocking and aggression in the tank. Please could you let me know what you think? Pleco is still a baby so it's going to be more of a bioload in future.
My filter is 25 w and it says 1800 l/h it pumps the water up into a chamber which trickles back down.
I also tried to do a deep sand bed with trumpet snails, it's been great in the tank so far.
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

A dwarf Gourami will fare much better in your present tank, than a pair of Peacock Gobi. The Gobies (actually Gudgeon) can get to 3 inches standard length and may be put your bioload in question when they reach that size. Beautiful fish though.  happy
