As long as you don't have multiple of each species it usually works out.
how many species of each kind should you have?
Just one, maybe two but only if your prepared to lose one.
per the guide, one could get about 15-20 in a 90g tank.
I would say stay closer to 15, 90 Is still only four feet wide.
First, thanks for the response.
My tank is 5ft. does that let me go to about 20 fish (all under 6 inch)?
can I do 4 fishes of 5 species? or
5 fishes of 4 species? or
can I do less fish of a species and introduce more species?
what did you mean about losing one? Maybe for each species I should make sure to have a female?
