I have a live bearer community tank set up in a 21 US gallon tank: I have a trio of guppies and a trio of platties (both trios are 1M & 2F). I also have several guppy fry hiding in my plants.
I have a high PH--somewhere around 7.8, with the possibility of 8.0.
I am sorely tempted by a neon tetra sale at my LFS
, and I want to give them a shot as my last non-algae eater fish. I would think 6 is a good number, but I'm tempted to get 10. Is this foolhardy, given my PH and existing fish population?
Does this risk instantly overstocking my tank? The bioload of neons is slight, but it does double my population of adults.
All help is appreciated as always, and given that the sale is now, I would greatly appreciate help as soon as is possible.
