I'm in a quandary. This is our first tank, we went for a big one to begin with as money is tight and we couldn't afford to upgrade further down the line. Essentially we have overstocked our tank. Now I need advice as to what would need rehoming.
It's a 250litre tall. In it we have 2 opalines gouramis, 2 golden gouramis, 11 danios, 7 penguin tetras, 9 adult platys and a lot of fry, 3 yoyo loaches (questionable advice from LFS
regarding not being overstocked despite being at the brink of full), and 6 baby bn plecos who we rehomed for a friend whose breeding pair just keep breeding!
As we stand, knowing that many are young and still tiny, it's not *URGENT* per se, but our nitrates are consistently high and I need to do something sooner or later. So. What do I rehome? Or do you think we're actually not as badly overstocked as I'm imagining? The plecos definitely have to go. I want to keep one of them only. (Don't want any breeding happening!). The penguins are actually the main culprit for eating fry so that's excellent population control but I'm still ending up with 5-10 survivors with each drop from the platys. The danios could probably go. I don't know. HELP!
