Am I over stocked?

WRWAquarium

Hi. Looks good, maybe a little overstocked but that's only my opinion. Filtration and tank dimensions depending too.

Thanks, My dimensions are 30 L x 12 W x 18 H and my filter is rated for 160L tank and moves 720 L/h according to the box. I just added the 6 blue tetras today and it looks a bit cosy in there so I thought I would ask :) Hopefully it's ok, I do a 25% WC weekly and I haven't had an issues to date. I'm hoping it will be ok as they are all relatively low bio load fish apart from the guppies as far as I know.

Yes I was thinking the emperor are larger tetras and your upper levels might be quite busy.

Long as water is good and there isn't aggression your OK. Could do larger % water changes if needed.

Well I have noticed the new blue emperors chasing the cardinals around a bit actually, and my guppies have been hiding in the plants at the top of the tank. I hope I didn't screw up the peaceful community I had :(

See how things pan out. You can return the emperor tetras if need be? People say they can be a bit nippy for tetras. Beautiful fish though.

I picked up some rummy nose tetras recently. Small, tight schooling and peaceful. I'd recommend them.
