Want to add Rainbow fish

  1. Jasonnnnnnnz Member Member

    I have a 60L community tank settled for about 3 months now. It's densely planted and has a 700L per hour filter. My stock in the tank is currently
    (11 neon tetras) (2 platies) (2 angels) (1 pleco, shrimp) and in addition I would like to add 2 dwarf rainbow fish or maybe 2 Boesemani rainbows they are at $15 each at my lfs. I do water changes at 5L each time every Saturday and water perimeters are really stable (haven't had any issues since I started). Should I add or not. Cheers

    in my opinion you are already way overstocked. 60 litres is about 15 gallons... the angels can reach 6" each, the pleco (depending on the type) 3-12", platies 3".... too many fish already. i wouldn't add anything to this tank. personally, i would upgrade the tank if you are wanting to keep your current fish.xx

    Pleco is bristle nose and soon or later I will upgrade but my angels are less than 2inches and giving away my platies to a mate. Still wanting them rainbows :L

    I'm with Hollie, don't add any more fish wait until you can upgrade. Your angels may only be 2" now but before very long they can be 6"+ tall & need much more space
