    Default tank size question?

    0 Not allowed!
    As I said in an earlier post, I just got my first aquarium, and I am very new at this.

    My aquarium is a Aqua Culture Deluxe 10 Gallon Aquarium Kit that includes size 10 glass aquarium, aqua-tech 5-15 power filter with e-z change filter cartridge, water conditioner, premium tropical fish food and goldfish food, fishkeeping guide and easy set-up instructions. It also includes deluxe flourescent full light hood ( lamp included ), 50 watt heater, digital thermometer, and a fish net.

    My fish are 2 angelfish and 3 glassfish. I just got all of this Friday, March 31, 2006, and so far all of my fish have been doing really good so far, and they seem to be happy. I do plan to upgrade to a bigger tank eventually.

    Am I overstocked??
    How often and how much should I change the water?

    Any advice for newbies would be greatly welcomed. Thanks so much.

    If your overstocked depends on how big the fish are know. If they are small you should be ok.

    The angelfish will however grow much to large for your aquarium and you will as you say have to upgrade
