And I have:
4 dojos. 2 Coolies (used to have more). 4 cardinals. 2 dwarf guarami. 8 dwarf rainbows. 2 otos. and 4 marble hatchets.
They are all swimming and eating exactly as they should. I know that the coolies are not the best in this tank; but it's the only one I've got.
Is this overstocked. I vacuum 2 times a week; and I do a small (5 - 10 gallon) water change 2/3 times weekly. We have a well planted tank. The substrate is not covered with a ground plant, but about half of the bottom is planted with small, med, and large (long) plants. They're all very healthy as well.
I have no problem getting rid of some of these fish. I would LOVE to find a home for the kuhlis, however, I do not trust Petsmart to give them to anyone who could give them what they need any more than I can; and I'm afraid that even the little group of two that I do have will get split up. Also, the guarami, those are ok to go, if need be. I trust the lfs (ha local it's an hour away ), enough to sell the guarami quickly enough, and these guys are gorgeous & healthy...so I think they'll go quickly! I would miss their "slap fights", but I don't have as much of an emotional tie to them as say, I do the loaches.
Honestly hard to think about getting rid of ANY of them, they seem to be thriving so splendidly in my tank so far. Hopefully my tests will show that I don't need to worry about it.
