I have in it a penguin 350 bio filter, 100 watt heater, 6 inch airstone, a bubbling treasure chest on its own air supply, 1 pictus cat, 1 banjo cat, 1 pleco, 1 albino rainbow shark, 1 redtail black shark, 2 guppies (1 fry), 2 swordtails, 2 moons, 2 variatus, 2 koi angelfish, 1 marble veiltail angelfish, 1 reg angelfish, 1 dragon scale betta, 1 ghost shrimp, and 1 albino african frog. Any comments on my community or how many fish I have? Too many, good, or too few? Please ask if u have any questions. Critics don't bother me any! I am in the process right now of clearing ick from my tank. Its going good
Welcome to AA!
I will say your tank is inappropriately stocked at the moment. I noticed in your picture your fish are still young so you have some time to either rehome, upgrade again or start another tank.
Pictus and banjo cat should be fine in the 46g but I don't have personal experience with them.
Common pleco? They are expected to reach 18 inches to 2 feet long. Because of this they ideally need a 125g tank just to allow the fish adequate room to turn around. A smaller option is a bristlenose pleco. They only reach 5-6inches.
The rainbow and the red tail sharks pose a proplem. Both are semi aggressive and require a 55g tank each. As they mature they are going to have territorial deputes. It's best to only keep one per tank.
The variatus, swordtails and guppies are fine but the catfish may eat them and the angels may eat the guppies.
4 angels is going to cause issue as they mature. Not only to they get very large (1foot high) but they can get aggressive when mature and spawning. I would suggest 1 or 2 for your tank at the most.
Watch the Betta closely. He might have issues with the guppys long flowing tail. As the angels mature be aware them and the Betta may disagree. Make sure the filter isn't making him struggle to swim and he has a calm area of surface water to take a breath from.
dwarf frings don't belong in community tanks. If the tank is too deep they can drown. They can also be out competed for food quite easily. They don't see very well so make sure you hand feed him so he gets enough food.
Hope this helps.
