Thats a good question! I really dont know! Basically, look for a water conditioner that detoxifys chlorine, chloramines, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, heavy metals and liquid test kit for freshwater that has tests for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, & ph. I know there has to be some equivalent products!!

Well it is a high bioload so you will have issues with water quality, and it is over crowded. The guppies may breed and it is just so many fish in such a small space it really isn't fair to them. Your fish will be stressed. My bettas don't spend hardly any time in a cave, they are always moving about spreading their finnage, flaring, and building bubblenests. Although they do occasionally "lay" on a plant.

Overstocking. It can and will cause major issues in the future. I'd the tank cycled?
The issues that it causes include but are not limited to the following ( lol I sound like my school student handbook or something):
Out of control water parameters, aggression issues, frequent maintenance required, nitrate build up, stressed out fish, and much more

Yet in another thread you've said your albino cory hasn't been moving for 24 hours. Seems there's already indicators that they aren't living happily.

An albino cory isn't a pygmy cory. You need to remove the cories ASAP, IMO they need a minimum tank size of 20 gallons.
