Hi Ya'll!!!

Hope everyone is doing great! I'm new to this forum and wanted to get some input on my Set up!!

My set up: 10Gl Planted (Straight Vallisneria, Cherry and Elodea) with Super Natural Fine Sand and Quartz Stones as substrate. I don't remember the filter capacity and the watts on the heater but at some point I did the calculation and they are good if not a a tad bit over my needs but they work perfectly. The filter as well creates a great little current. I have a 10cm rectangle oxygenation stone and a small pump. For lighting I have 2x480lmn white/warm lights.

I have 1 big-a$s 18cm Pleco, 6 Cardinals, 2 male and 2 female Guppy, 1 zebra, 1 female orange swordfish, 2 Panda Corydora, 1 angelfish, 1 female Betta and 1 Ghost Shrimp.

I hope I'm doing it right!!

Looks really nice.
To answer your question about stock, from what I ve read here, a 10g is pretty small for your Angelfish, Pleco (depending on type) and the swordfish . There s a site called Aquaadvisor that will tell you what percentage stocked you are.
Main thing is testing often with a liquid test kit.
Hoping more experienced members will jump in here, too.
