    Default Comments/ advice on my stocking plan.

    Hello,
    I think I finally came up with what I want to do as a final stocking plan. I would like to hear any comments or advice on my plan, I'm open to changes and suggestions.

    Tank:
    10 gallon
    Planted

    I currently have:
    1 male honey gourami
    4 tail spot pygmy cory
    2 endlers livebearers
    3 ghost shrimp (at least I think, don't see them much anymore)
    2 red cherry shrimp

    I'm thinking for my final stocking plan I will have:
    1 male honey gold gourami
    4 endlers (all male)
    6 pygmy cory (tail spot)
    5 red cherry shrimp
    3 ghost shrimp (don't really have a problem with getting rid of the ghost shrimp)

    FYI: aquadvisor puts this stocking level at 95%, if I remove the 3 ghost shrimp in the system it goes down to 92%.

    How's the tank going to be filtered?

    Your plan looks good to me, you could have more RCS than 5 if you wanted to.

    I'm not exactly sure on how many gallons my filter is rated for. I bought my whole setup from craigslist. I plan on looking into it more, and may be contact the guy I bought it from. Its a back hanging type with a bio bag. I guess, I'm assuming it's at least a 5-15 gallon and sufficient?

    I Think your stocking plans are sweet! It's a lot of fish and inverts, but they are all tiny little things! Love those pygmy cories! A group of 6 will make them feel much more comfortable.

    Like Slap wrote, you will have to consider your filter capacity for beneficial bacteria, and I wouldn't get the ghost shrimp. Is stick with more RCS and let them breed. A friend of mine did ghost shrimp in a ten or twenty gallon (I forget) and he found them to be quite aggressive. (I think at feeding time? )

    Hmmm...can you get a pic of it?

    I have one of these for my fairly heavily stocked 10G, great little filter

    Thanks. The ghost shrimp are already in there, but I'm thinking about getting rid of them. I rarely see them and only see one at a time now and again. I kind of need to do some landscaping I think.

    It looks similar to this style, but an older style. I can try to post some actual pics when I get home.

    Personally, I would not keep either pygmy cories or honey gouramis permanently in a 10 gallon. But that is just my opinion.
    As an alternative to pygmy cories, how about asian stone catfish?

    I thought about Asian stone catfish, but was turned off when reading how inactive they can be, and already have 4 pygmies.
    Any other thoughts on pygmy cories or 1 honey gourami in a 10 gallon?
