Ok I'll make this short I completely overstocked my 55 because I'm new to tropical fish.... Listened to pet store didn't school fish ECT... Anyways now to questions 1. I already have a 10 gallon that's set up and I have 6 neon tetras and 3 shrimp... In my 55 I have well alit of everything
6 guppies 1 male
4 blackfin tetras
10 zebra dianos
6 Cory cats
3 swordfish 2 female 1 male
3 male Molly
4 cherry Barb's
3 platys

Then my tank that's a 10 gallon that's already set up I have 6 neon tera's
What if I add my 3 platy???
So I guess my question is WHAT can I move to my 10 gallon with the neons??

Most of us did the same thing, I'm not a stocking expert but I don't think the 55 is overstocked well maybe a little., there may be problems with temps. I don't know.
TexasDomer would be one of the people who know stocking, some of them will be around soon.

It annoys me so much when pet stores give bad advice. Sorry you received such bad advice.

Neons need 20 gallons minimum.

Are you looking for which fish to move to the 10 gallon permanently or until you can rehome some?

You could move the guppies to the 10 but not with the neons.

To be honest you don't have room for all those fish in a 55 and a 10. I think it would be best to rehome a few pr get another tank.

What type of sucker fish?

If you got a 40 gallon you could shuffle fish around and do this
55 gallon
8 blackfin tetras
10 zebra danios
8 Neons
8-10 cories (what type by the way?)

40 gallon
3 swordtails
3 mollies
8 cherry barbs
2 platies
2-3 guppies

10 gallon
1 platy
3-4 guppies
3 shrimp
Aqadvisor is very inaccurate. There are many things it doesn't take into account. It is very misleading for beginners.

If I were you (for the 10 gallon), I would rehome the neon tetras. Then, I'll add the 3 platies and 3 guppies to the 10 gallon. Then rehome the 3 other guppies.

For the 55 gallon, I suggest upping the blackfin tetras to 6 and rehoming the cherry barbs, and rehome the 3 mollies OR 3 swordtails.

What type of cory?

Yes, if you want the cherry barbs, up the numbers of cherry barbs to 8. Rehome the zebra danios and up the blackfins to 8. And also up the albino and emrald cories to 6.

Like activity level, area of tank they live in, territory issues, temperement, even for bioload it's not very accurate.
