My 48 litre tank with 2 guppys, 2 mollies and 3 juhli corys. What do you think?

Any suggestions for another addition??

Hi there,

48 litres is only twelve gallons. That tank is stocked as is with just one molly, it's overstocked with two.

Is the tank cycled?
What is your filtration?
How often do you change your water?

Hi Cute tank!
I have to agree ^^^
Molly's are very messy fish (high bioload/waste out put). A 12gal isn't really large enough. I would try and rehome at least one or both of them.

On a scale of 0-10 with 0 being an empty tank, I'd give yours a 5.

Thanks for your replies,

Yes the tank is cycled.
I'm using a Eheim pickup 2008 internal power filter.
I do a 25% change twice a week.

All of the fish seem happy enough, and I keep the changes frequent to make sure the bioload remains healthy, would you still suggest re-homing the Molly's?

Thanks

I rate you as a 9 for the bi-weekly 25% pwc.
