First post here, wondering if I could pick your guys brains.
I am starting my second tank (quickly becoming an addiction) and I had a few questions in regards to stocking.
My first tank is a 75 gallon planted, and its doing fantastic. Now I decided to do a high-tech 10 gallon with high light plants. My flora is microsword, java fern, red tiger, and HC. I'm going to stock celestial pearl danios. I also want to add about 4 red cherry shrimp and 2 otos.
I have a few questions:
1. I have heard Otos need larger spaces, but they do such a good job on my 75 gallon that I couldn't imagine having a tank without them. They clean my glass and my plants so well. Has anyone had success keeping them in smaller tanks?
2. If I go ahead with my plan of 2 otos and 4 RCS, how many celestial pearl danios could I keep? I was thinking 6, but if I could safely keep 8-10 I would be a very happy man . I have access to them with no problem through my LFS
who will order anything I want.
Thanks guys, hope to hear from you!
