    Hello all!

    I'm rethinking my stocking plan and would like to make sure I'm not overstocked.

    To quickly go over my tank: It's a planted aquarium (crypts, moneywort, anubias nana), Driftwood, Fluval 306 canister filter, Dimensions= 36 x 13 x 24

    Here is my stocking plan:
    2 Dwarf Gouramis (1 male/female)
    20 Neon Tetras
    6 Bloodfin Tetras
    6 Emerald Cory Catfish
    1 Tiger Nerite Snail

    Please let me know if I'm overstocked and any suggestions/recommendations is welcome. I could cut back on the number of neons at least. Thanks in advanced!

    You are understocked actually.
    I would do:
    2 Dwarf Gouramis (1 male/female)
    20 Neon Tetras
    8 Bloodfin Tetras
    8 Emerald Cory Catfish
    6 Tiger Nerite Snail

    Thanks for the suggestion! I never thought of Bolivian Rams. I'll look more into the species.
