However, there are variables involved with what can be truly considered overstocked. It is fully planted so this helps.
The shrimp are multiplying and so the Cory cats are now also .
In this 10 gal
tank I change 2 gal
The only water parameter I still check is the nitrate level just to make sure it does not get too high.
Sounds like you really have a great ecosystem! I am still learning but I'm guessing that fish and shrimp having babies are a good sign. Also great that you only have to check the nitrates. I'm still at 2.0 with the ammonia. When I checked the nitrites yesterday, there weren't any so I just added some more api quick start. Hopefully that will help move things along. Plus I need to be more patient, lol.
