    Please can someone let me know the stocking percentage of this tank?

    10 gallon

    5x neon tetra
    4x harlequin rasboras
    4x red blonde guppy
    4x amano shrimp

    That tank is over stocked. A great tool to tell stocking levels, also other good information for stocking advice is www.aqadvistor.com you are able to put info in and find stocking levels. The rasboras should also be at least a school of 5 at minimum, which obviously would put you more over stocked.

    Unfortunately yes. Neither neons nor rasbora are appropriate for a 10 gal. 4 male guppies and 4 amano shrimp will work though!

    rehome all tetras and get 2 more rasboras. if people think that is still overstocked then take out the tetras and rasboras and maybe add another guppy or two.

    Rasbora a are too active for a 10 gal, so they need to be rehomed too.
