Hey everyone :)

Hi guys
Well I'm completely new to the wonderful world of fish but so far so good (despite a little drama yesterday which is in a different thread)
I have had my 70L tank up and running for two months now and already cannot wait to get a 6ft tank! Haha it's more addictive than I thought!
My tank currently has one tattered Bristlenose catfish, 2 dwarf gourami, 3 guppies and 10 neons.
Also on a side note is that a fully stocked tank or is there room to add?

Thanks

Converting into gallons it seems that you have roughly a 18G tank (correct me if i'm wrong, my converting is a little rusty)
Which is too small for the stock you have. Your neons, though small have a high activity level therefore require more room. Welcome to AA!

^ I'm going to have to disagree about the neons. I had a school (10) in a 17g tank for nearly a year before I moved them out (to a smaller tank btw). They really are not overly active. They chase each other about and swim in their shoal but prefer to hang by the plants. Even if I thought they required a 20g tank minimum, 18g falls just short of that so IMO it would be fine anyway.
To the OP - I think your stock list sounds fine but I wouldn't add anything else.

Thanks mumma was getting a bit worried as I had been advised that neons would be a good choice.
