Talking Stocking Query for 180litre Upgrade...

So I went out and picked up a 180litre 3ft Fluval aquarium, set it up with black sand substrate, bogwood and driftwood with plants, a few rooted plants, and a couple of rocks and coconut hides. Its running a Fluval 205 external, seeded with the biomax from my old U4, it also has a small internal which is for my QT tank to ensure when needed, the QT will be instantly cycled, the QT is 25litre...

My question is my stocking...

I have
2 Cuckoo Cichlids
1 Green Severum
1 Pearl Gourami
4 Glass Catfish
7 Rummynose Tetra's
And a Plec

Everything looks fine, not too busy, and they all have plenty of swimming room, but is that overstocked?

Thanks x

Reckon you should be ok. Could be some competition for space if they all get to full size, think some types of glass catfish can get quite big!
I'm on the limit with my tank
