Yeah, its pretty overstocked. You could do 4 guppies, and maaybe the pleco, depending on what kind, some get really, reeeaaly big. Is your tank cycled, id take some back to the store, or get a bigger tank...

A 20L would work too. That's alot of fish. LOL

and i'm not sure about any plecos being 5g appropriate. Even the BN is kinda for bigger tanks.

You've been collecting some nice fish, now might be the time to upgrade the tank.

I just upgraded my 10g community tank to the 20L. Its soo much better. I don't know how much space you have over there in your apt/house but if you can that'd be so cool. i have 12 neons and am getting a bunch more in the mail today! I can't wait! It's so much fun to upgrade a tank! Go for it, and by the way, we LOVE pictures here. Even a shot of the overcrowded 5g would be neat. lol

Ya know, that is not at all what i was expecting! It looks awesome! I so love the rimless tanks, and the light is cool too.

You look like you might have a knack for saltwater. lol It looks just like my 4g coral tank.

I know the rimless are a little more money, but I'd stick with that and see how much tank you can afford.

Just an excellent job.
