To much??

OK, so here is the plan for my sorority tank. :)

Heavily planted, already has lots of hiding spots! BTW, they will be LIVE plants. 20g filter. 4-5 betta girls, ghost shrimp, and possibly two Otos...I just don't know if that is too much!! It will have live plants, so that should help with the bio load, and a filter that is very powerful... I just don't know ... Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!

I think it should be okay. Ghost shrimp don't produce much waste. But this is for a 10 gal, right?

betta females grow to 2-2.5 inches
ottos up to 1.5-2 inches
the live plants help enormously
if ur going to do that many, id highly suggest changing 3 gallons a week instead of the typical 10% change a week of only one gallon, should be fine to keep ammonia down
something to think about

31 Betta Males
12 CrownTail
7 HalfMoon
5 DeltaTail
4 DoubleTail
3 Veil Tail


44 Betta Females
Round, Crown, Spade

65 gallon
55 gallon
35 gallon
2 - 20 gallon
4 - 10 gallon
16 - 1.5-2 gallon

Ok thanks!!! I've been researching Ottos all night!! Oh and are ALL Ottos caught in the wild? 'Cause I don't really want to support that...
