Stocking question

Post by olantone » Sun Jan 13, 2019 5:50 pm

I recently stocked my 55g with 6 convicts, 3 jack dempsey and 2 green terrors. They are only 1- 1 1/2 right now and assuming they all will grow to adults will the tank be over stocked? Thanks for the help in advance.

Waaaaaay overstocked. You need to do a little bit of research on some of those species. It's going to be a bloodbath in there more than likely and a 55 is way to small. Maybe 1 Dempsey and a catfish, or grow the convicts out and see if you get a pair and just keep them and breed. There's several options but when they get bigger you'll have to switch some things up.
