Overstocked?

Is my 10G oversrocked? It's a heavily planted tank with an aquaclear 50 as filtration

Stocking List-

7 Chili Rasboras
28~ Shrimp
2 Otto's
1 Nerite snail

Do you think it would be possible to get maybe 2 more chili Rasboras because they are so small? Also maybe one more nerite snail? Thanks!!

IMO, yes. 2 more chilis would be fine. Bioload-wise, one more nerite would be fine, but there is not a lot of biofilm/available in a 10g tank for 2 nerites as well as the otos, so I do not suggest doing it. I have kept 2 nerites and 2 otos in my 10g tank but I had to do a lot of supplemental food to keep everybody happy.

That is true, maybe grow algae on a rock to supplement their needs

Yeah that was the reason I hesitated on the second snail. I won't get the snail because lack of food for everybody. Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure, should I get 2 more chili Rasboras? Or should I splurge on some shrimp? If you guys think I should get the shrimp, should I get some black bee shrimp or some red tiger?

What shrimp do you currently have?
You have a fair amount of shrimp, if I were you I would get 2 more chilis.

Ok. Just checking. Some shrimp can interbreed and just make ugly brown babies with each other. Thats why I was asking.
