How is a bioload measured to you?

I'd say it could support 3-5 smaller fish

Certain fish are messier then others but I am not sure how bioload is actually measured in ppm

I don't believe there is any sort of true measurement for bioload.

I say you might be able to put another fish, and your CUC could use some bulking up IMO.

More snails, like cerith or astrea if you don't want more turbos

My CUC looks like this (14G Biocube):
6-7 blue leg hermits
6-7 turbos

Besides the glass (Which is a problem for everyone) my tank stays nice and clean, and when I move it I plan to possibly get some nassarius for my sand bed
