Stocked?

Do you think I can add any more chili Rasboras withought increasing nitrates too much? Also, do you think I'm completely stocked? It's a shrimp tank, so low levels of nirtates are best. Thanks!

Stock-

7 Chili Rasboras
40 red cherry shrimp
2 Otos
1 horned nerite
2 micro crabs
MTS
A Few Ramshorn snails

Tank size? Adding a couple more is probably not going to impact your tank in any significant way, they are pretty tiny things.

I've read that they should be in schools of 8-10. should I max out the school or just get one more?

As long as you aren't having any nitrate issues I'd get a couple more, but it's your call. I hate filling tanks to capacity so I try to stay out of it, lol.

Oh ok, I were to upgrade the school to 9, would The tank be completely stocked? Yeah, I'm going to try and avoid completely stocking the tank.

Sounds pretty full as it is, that's a lot going on in a 10g. But as long as everything is thriving and you don't have any water issues then I don't see the problem with it.
