I have an 18 gallon and I am adding a 29 gallon this week. I have read a lot about stocking limits and such. I believe I am overstocked on the 18 and will be moving some things to the 29. First, this is what I have in the 18: 7 Rasboras, 4 Neons, 2 Plattys, 1 Cory cat, and 1 small/mid size angel. What I do not understand is why my tank is running so well since it cycled over two months ago. I have zero ammonia and nitrites and my nitrates are very manageable. Keep in mind I am running a Penguin Bio-Wheel 200 (Up to 50 gallons). My theory is that oversized filters can greatly increase your capacity. And no, the current seems very reasonable to me and the fish seem pretty mellow and not stressed. Regradless, the Angel is going into the 29, but I am seriously thinking that this tank is very stable with numbers of fish that should suggest otherwise. According to many I am over my limit by 2 just counting the rasboras and neons. I also think it is a little silly to count neons and rasboras as 2" fish. I have not seen many at all over 1.5". JMO What do you guys think?
