Thanks I find tetras too small so maybe less fish but just platys or guppies. I'm happy with just more than one fishI think hat would be a bit overstocked. I would stick one species, and have, lets say 12 ember tetras in the tank.
ideally wanted Betta fish as centre piece fish and a few other fish but heard that Betta dont go along. Then looked at Red gourami as centre piece with celestial pearl danios but there ph suitability seems lower and my tank water is not soft so started thinking about platys/guppies and embers because of their hardinessWhat would be your favorite fish for your tank if you would not worry about the ph?
Many fish adapt pretty well outside their original ph range. 7.5 to 8 is not so bad.
thanks i will cut down on the number worst case two platys and embers or just 3 x platys/guppiesFor tanks under 75 L (and sometimes larger) I'm a big believer in only one species.
After typing that I realized that's not what you asked. I think you're right on the edge of being overstocked, but it will probably be okay. The stocking isn't what I'd do, but it's your tank and you should stock it the way you want.
