Stocking question

Hi

My stocking at moment in 465 litre subtropical tank

2male Black Moors
1femake Black Moor
1female Calico fantail
1female Golden fantail
1female Calico Ryukin

3female WCM
3 female Danios
1 (unsure of sex) variatus platy.

I don't plan on replacing any WCM or danios when they live out their life span.

But I love the variatus platy as they have so much personality.


In the long run with 6 fancies. Is it practical to have some more variatus plays and what the max number I could have. I would understock. But just curious.

IMO on stocking I think you could have a nice little school of platies getting around in that size tank. Maybe just increase the water changes slightly.

That may give you some idea then? If your doing water changes at a certain level out of necessity or just as all the gear is out anyway. Just an idea. On my DT its overstocked and I ferts dose so I'm doing 40 to 50% each week. So I can't get any more fish.

How do the platys go at tank temp? I had a school that didn't do well over winter here.
