My cichlid tank, is it overstocked?

    I have the feeling it´ll be problematic in the near future :p, fish have gotten so big XD

    But I love each one of them , I could never get rid of them D:> , if anything i would try to keep them in the same tank, even if that tank was from someone else, i'm thinking maybe the local museum, they have some really big tanks in there, tho who knows.

    For now they´ll remain in my tank :p


    Here´s the youtube video

    Your tank is quite overstocked. I see a green terror and i believe a texas cichlid to both of which need at least a 55 gallon tank to themselves. Also, it seemed you had a common pleco which get extremely massive so I'd try and rehome those 3 as soon as you can to prevent stunting growth.

    There are actually 3 plecos, i do plan on getting rid of those, never liked them <.<... just waiting for a big algae eater that I ordered to arrive at my local fish store, cant just put a small one there, they would eat it xP

    But yeah, tank used to look decent when I first bought the fish, they were quite small and I didn't know they grew up so much, but it all seems to be going well for now o.o

    why don't you just get a bigger tank? Then you can keep them with no problems

    I cant afford a new tank, also theres literally no space for it at home, I would have to break that stand where it is now to make it wider, plus good quality tanks are so expensive here o_o
