    Question rcs for my tank????

    0 Not allowed!
    Ok I just got some ghost shrimp but they are so hard to see while they are hiding in my hornwort and they are hard to breed so I was thinking about getting some red cherry shrimp but I don't know if I should or could ok here my tank equipment and stock.

    Equipment: aqua-tech 30-60 filter 10 gallon glass tank incadescent hood with 1 screw in flourescent bulb and 1 incadescent plant growth bulb and a petco air pump rated for 13 gallons with a t valve one air stone in my breeder box and one in the tank.

    Stock: fish 1 upside down catfish, 1 male betta, 1 zebra danio, 2 otos, 6-8 mosquitofish, 1 bladder snail, 10 ghost shrimp, 1 female crayfish, and some baby ramshorn snails

    Plants hornwort, brazilian pennywort, marimo ball pieces, a little bit of green cabomba and 3 aponagatons.

    My tank has natural looking gravel with 2 terra cotta pot halves. So do you think I should get some rcs or not?
    ( iknow my tank is overstocked but my filter is rated for 6 times what my tank is and I have a lot of live plants)

    Even though the shrimp will add little to the bio-load, I wouldn't add anything else to that tank. Are you aware the upside down catfish and the danio do not belong in a 10g and danio should be kept in larger groups?
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    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.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Yup but the cat schools with the otos and is still small and they grow slow so by the time I upgrade it should still be small. And about the danio I have bought 2 more but my cray eats them or something because I can never find them but all the mosqutofish and the danio school together.
