Would this be overstocked?
I currently have 1 male VT in an 8 gallon tank. The tank is still cycling but once this is complete I plan on getting 3-6 ghost or red cherry shrimp.
I've been having some algae blooms, mostly what I think is called hair algae on my plants (hygrophlia, 2 different crypts and some bacopa) and decor. Would it be possible to add 1 or 2 other algae eaters on top of the shrimp?
I'm not really sure what I could buy other than shrimp or snails that wouldn't overstock the tank... I don't like the idea of snails and I can't find ANY type of algae eating fish that are small enough, or that you don't need a whole school of.
How would you stock a tank this size?
