    Hello~
    I currently have:

    6 Panda Cory's

    2 Swordtail

    1 Angelfish...

    I will be adding 4 more Panda cory's for a total of 10...

    So... Do you think I am stocked, or can I add anything else?
    I would like to get one or two kuhli loaches, but I think I am pretty stocked...

    What are your thought???

    If this is your 20 gallon, you are overstocked.

    Oops, that would probably help, LOL... it is for my 20g... It is a penguin 200 with a bio wheel, and one full media cartridge of bacteria (if that makes sense)

    Am I?? I didn't think this was very much for a 20g tank...

    also, my param's are stable, 0/0/10

    I agree with Lynda. Its the Angel that does it. 29 gallons is best when it comes to them, not because of their bioload, but their size and temperament.

    the angel is only 2.5" right now, and she is going in a new 55g tank within the next couple months or so... hopefully

    Then planning now is fine, but I wouldn't add anything until she's out.

    That said, I'd stick with just the corries for the bottom. What sort of look are you wanting?

    Hmmm... Thats a bit of a challenge. Most fish that "chill" are top or bottom dwellers, that get too big for this tank lol

    I know, that's why I did it, but so far what I have is great, I love it... all of my fish are active, and get along VERY well together... of course I still have the occasional aggression, but that is typically after weekends (Monday), when they aren't fed as much.

    For sure overstocked. I would wait to add more until you get a larger tank.
