Am I over stocked?

So I saw some panda cories that I really like, an I wanted to add 3 or 4. I was just worrying if that would put me over the limit. My stock is : 5 buenos aires tetras, 3 long finned serpea tetras, 2 german blue rams m and f, 3 peppered cories, and 3 black kuhli loaches.

If I were you, rather than adding pandas, I would make the peppered cory and kuhli loach numbers up to 6, instead of 3. That way they will be happier and you will probably see them more - both of them like to be in groups of at least 6.

I would have thought that stocking would be ok, and I would make those groups bigger but it is up to you

Hope this helps

Thanks, I just thought that maybe the pandas would shoal with the peppered ones. Is that not the case?

They might "Hang Out" together, but they won't shoal as such. They will be much happier in a group all together! There isn't much better than seeing a nice group of cories "Playing" together! Cute

Lots Of Space Left!

Lots of types of cory's

Some which wil only grow small.

The bigger the group the more happy they will be

Longer they may live
