Hi, Is my cichlid tank overstocked? i have had the tank and all current inhabitants for around 16 months. All the fish were juviniles when they went in and now some are really, very big. I have a feeling i am overstocked but i dont really want to get rid of any :-( OK, so my tank is a 55 gallon rectangle and in it are (dont get to excited about the mixed breeds, it has worked out so far) 1 electric yellow (6cm) 2 red jewels (8cm each) 2 convicts (one is 3cm and one is 6cm) one pink convict (8cm), 1 red emperor (given to me, 12cm), 1 lithobate (6cm), 2 brichardi (7cm) 1 johanni (6cm), 1 zebra (9cm) 1 lombardoi (8cm) 1 pleco (17cm) 1 baby pleco (3cm) the baby was just given to me. It isnt the cleaning or anything, i clean every two weeks and add bacteria. It isnt the tank because i have never had any probs with that department. The fish themselves are all good, healthy, there is some fighting occurring but they all seem to work it out. I am just concerned that i will be asking for trouble if i keep it stocked at this level, i wont be adding any more fish and havent done so in six months.
