    Hi my name is Gabriel. I've got a 28 litre and a 60 litre tank. In my 60 litre I've got four male guppies, 5 harlequin rasboras, 3 phantom tetras, 3 peppered corydoras and one amano shrimp. I'm going to get another one or two amano shrimp but I was wondering if I could get cherry shrimp and/or crystal shrimp. Would the guppies be OK with them as they dont bother the amano? Could I also get some neon tetras or Zebra danios and more Cory's or is that really overstocked?

    Also forgot to say I'm new to forums, so hi.

    I would just stop there. Already overstocked but as long as it's cleaned regularly you will not have a problem.

    OK thanks. I'm getting a 105 litre soon and will move the rasboras, tetras, Cory's and amano in there. Got to wait a few months though.

    I've got a 60 litre tank that's got 2 honey gourami and a red robin gourami. I'm wondering about adding 2-3 platys and 1 molly. Is this OK. Will add nerite snails as well.

    I've got a 60 litre with a red robin gourami and two honey gourami. I'm wanting to get 2-3 platys and a molly. Is this OK?

    Mollies can be aggressive but it should be ok. Keep an eye on the gourami though because they may show aggression in the future. They could also pick on the fish coming in. A lot of the time (my experience) They want to show dominance when they are the first added in a tank. This can work but be cautious.

    Don't add anymore than what you want, It will be stocked enough. Keep up with cleaning lol.

    I think Red Robin is a Honey Gourami, so you should be fine, they're relatively peaceful for Gourami. I wouldn't add a Dwarf as they're aggressive.

    OK. Always thought red robin were dwarfs but that's nice to know. Thank you for the feedback.

    Most gouramis that are sold as Red Robin or Red honeys are in fact T.labiosa (thick lipped)

    So they're not the same thing?
