I was doing some research and I came across this very thorough stocking calculator that I thought everybody would find interesting. It includes a database with 917 different species of fish!

Thanks for the heads up.... I kinda figured the site was around for a while. I just thought it was fun to use.... theoretical setups.

unfortunately, the site does not take into account individual personalities of some fish, amount fed, and the effect live plants can have on filtration.. I have also found some info on their species to be incorrect, and some fish with the different bio-loads were considered to be the same or vice-versa.

I've been using it to plan my new tank. I figure if I leave plenty of margin for error (don't max out stocking or filtration), it should be ok. Obviously I research fish species in addition to's recommendations.

It isn't perfect, but I've found it to be a useful tool for trying out different options.

There's someone else on this list who used it and it was WAAAYYYY overstocking their tank.

It's telling me I'm only 72% stocked when I know I'm pushing my stocking limits and there's no way I should add anything else.

I'd be cautious using it.
