I think there’s no such thing. I love a “jungle”. Obviously it can become too confined for bottom dwellers I guess, hmmm

I would only say there's too many plants when you can't fit another in or when plants start outcompeting other plants for light or nutrients.

what is consider too many plants you have pic..
Don't have a picture right now. 10 gallon tank:

9 marimo moss balls
1 Amazon sword
1 rosette Sword (2 when other arrives)
3 bunches anacharis
1 hortwort
Tiny bit of Java moss
1 anubias Nana (2 when other arrives)
Java fern will be arriving soon

They are all plants that will be going in my 40 gallon breeder. The stand is taking longer than anticipated so it is not set up yet. Until then they are in my 10 gallon.

I think the amazon sword will outgrow your tank

Yes, all of these plants will be going into my 40 gallon soon. Just wondering if there are ill effects of having so many plants in my 10 gallon in the meantime?

Nothing bad will happen from that many plants. Make sure all of them have enough light and nutrients

The only issue I can see is fish/inverts that enjoy and open swimming space or naturally come from open waters may not exactly enjoy excessive amount of plants.

Otherwise, they will help a lot with nutrient uptake.
