Aq advisor is a good website for telling you how stocked you are. I just put your details in and it says you are 35% stocked.
With the tank being so narrow I would imagine you would have to stick with small fish similar to the neon tetras but you should definitely be able to get some more in there

Sorry I got muddled up, it is 152x44x11 does that make it more like 35ltr?

I'll have a look at the website, thanks mate.

Them measurements would give you 73 ltr

To calculate the volume in litres just multiply the length by the with by the height ( in cm) and divide your answer by 1000.

70 litres gives you a lot more room to work with.
Just keep with fairly small fish so they have room to turn.

Hmmm that must be the overall size then including the picture frame and flap underneath to house the power points, will have a proper measure tonight.

Thanks for your help though

No bother. The best measurement to get would be the internal measurements. But either way you should have room for a few more fish
