Overstocked tank

Ever overstock! Especially in smaller tanks.

At one point I actually had a 10 gallon tank with:
-1red tailed tinfoil barb
-2 silver dollars
-1 6 in. Common pleco
-1 4 in. Catfish

Never overstock! Research fish before you buy!

I am I think.

11g

1 x zebra danio
1 x pearl danio
3 x glo light tetra
1 x bristlenose catfish
2 red cherry shrimp

I didn't know danios need a 3ft min length tank before as I did have 4 of them but 2 died. These 2 seem to be fighters though, just when I think they look ill, the next morning they perk right up. I won't be replacing them.

What get me is the LFS they have so many fish squeezed together in their tanks it makes you think you could have that many.

Yeah I see that same thing all the time. I would say that really not overstocked that bad, but you could always get a larger tank.
