Not sure how to describe how planted but pretty heavily, got salviniq on top, like 3 anubias, 1 microsorum, 1 hygrophylia, 1 echinudorus, 1 Rotala, and waiting to get some grass.How planted will it be? You will need good filtration and water changes. But if you keep up with that then that stocking should be fine. With all those smaller fish swimming around your apistos will be out and about all the time. If the bio-load works out then that should be a nice looking tank.
I think its 41 fish lol. And I know 1 fish doesn't necessarily equal 1 gallon..ok so i just did the math and yopur at 48 fish and thats 2 overtstocked but you can get awya with that number id you keep up the good water parimeters than you fish should be healthy along with the oplants
So do you figure that stocking will be fine? I could cancel the cardinals or rummynose if you think it would be a safer bet.I don't think you can really use math when keeping fish. There is just too much variation between species and even between individuals of the same species.
I think its doable, though I trend toward understocking all my tanks. If the tank is truly heavily planted, in the sense that it looks like a jungle in there, your plants should do much to keep your parameters in check. However, it will require attentive maintenance to be sure nothing goes awry.So do you figure that stocking will be fine? I could cancel the cardinals or rummynose if you think it would be a safer bet.
