Stocking tanks

I'm having a debate with my room mate as to how much our fish tank can fit.

It's 5f x 2 x 2




Thanks

I would say you could probably put around 150 neon tetras in there.

But seriously, there is no universal answer. Did you have some specific fish you were looking at?

Go to Aqadvisor and plug in combos, if you have the dough some different rainbows would be great.

That's too many common plecos, they create a ton of poo, other than that the stock seems ok, as long as there is lots of plants and different territories..

Spiny eel would eat the neons, rummynoses, mollys, possibly the betta... I got one when I was a noob, put it in a community tank and it ate EVERYTHING.

Bristlenoses can also be territorial
