10 gallons, so thats 37 liters. 10 platties. surely if you have a good filter, and the fish look happy, then surely its ok.
im no expert (obviously) but i do read alot of facts and figures regarding tank size and quantity of fish, and it all seems so variable. everyone seems to have a different opinion on the topic.
if you have a good filter (or 2) and you ammonia levels are at 0ppm, do weekly 20-30% partial water changes and vacuum the substrate at the same time, feed only as much as the fish can eat in a short time, then there should be no reason these fish wont be happy and healthy.
It would be interesting to hear others opinions on the topic of quantity vs tank size. If the filter/s is doing a good job, and all the bio-load is taken care of what are the other limiting factors?
Congrats on the tank btw. But be warned, most cant stop at just one.
