    My sterbais were three for 20 so a little pricier than yours when you convert it (although I am in London and fish here seem to be a bit more expensive than outside London).

    I've not seen those Weitmanis before. They're great looking. They really stand out.

    I'd get 6 weitmani and call it good. Maybe down the road get a bigger tank. I too like variety (ck my profile page to see what I keep in my tanks) but if you think your overcrowding your tanks, don't take the risk.

    Rehome those two platies, don't worry about the Rosy's right now, and you will be fine.

    When you plead your case to your wife for a bigger tank, have this playing in the background, LOL.

    ^^ Too bad I can only give that video, and your post, 1 thumbs up...but the corys run and hide, like firefly and me were talking about earlier

    Who contributes happily to the bioload in a greater amount, tetras or corys?

    The larger and/or more active of the two species will have the bigger bio-load.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Just wanted to chime in and say I think variety is okay! In general greater variety can cause problems, in terms of safety and numbers, but you have done the research and can pull it off. I do recognize the appeal of larger schools, but there's nothing wrong with variety either.

    Thanks for that Zerileous, I appreciate it....I'm still pondering the idea of another filter and some rummys, no more than 10

    I gotta agree with steeler1 here Matt. Rehome the platies and add the rummys.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Thanks Taurus, I understand that is probably what needs to happen, and I won't proceed further until I can find them a good home.

    I think that's also where experience comes in. As a newbie you're inclined to want 1 of everything. When you gain a bit of knowledge you learn that a lot of fish do better in company so you're inclined to get fewer species in groups of at least 6.
    I'm now at the stage in the hobby where I think if I could restart I would have gone for just a single midwater species and in high numbers.

    So, you're right, there's nothing wrong with variety as long as you keep schooling species in decent numbers.
