    Ok so when my mate gave me the tank he said it was around 10g.

    I just measured the dimensions and its 24" by 12" by 18"

    When working this out it comes to 22.4g US or 84lt.

    Taking off the thickness of the glass I can pretty much round it to 20G or 80lt for the sake of stocking.

    I posted a thread the other day asking about if I should get a few more Platys and based it on a 10G lol

    My current stocking is 6 white tipped tetras, 2 zebra danios, 2 platys and 2 yamato shrimp.

    I was thinking about getting a few more platys so they can school, realisticaly would another 4 be ok?

    Maybe even a couple more shrimp too at a later point?


    thanks chris

    Not familiar with yamato shrimp, but most shrimp add little bioload to your tank, so I'd think you'd be safe to add them!
    30g:: Planted: 1 SAE, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 5 Guppies, 3 Platys, 1 zebra danio, 9 Rasboras

    2.5g: 1 Male Betta

    I'd probably worry about upping the school of zebra danios before the platties. I wouldn't see a problem with 3 or 4 more danios and an extra platy or two.

    Yup! You can add a few more...but not too many...I don't like the look of overstocked tanks...not to mention they need more maintenance...

    25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

    I agree. Get more danios. I would get 4 more zebra danios, and 1 more platy.

    Cool.

    I'll prob get a few more danio in a week or two then one or two platys.

    I added a couple of rocks yesterday and removed a plant and trimmed the others so I want to see if there are any changes first before stocking.

    Is interesting seeing what causes what changes
