What size is your aquarium?

I am unable to put anymore mystery snails in my aquarium lol my big gold guy either mates with them or attacks them. I can't really tell which. The second I put another snail in his feelers come out and he starts going towards them at remarkable snail speed. I am still stunned he notices them the moment they are put into the aquarium.

Here's one more pic of him :)

i love the pictures of him i think he is really cool

i think my tank is 16 gallons and i worry i've got to many fish as it is

4 gold tetras 4 black tetras 5 neon tetras
6 harlequin fish 3 guppies 1 clam

i don't know if that is over stocked but i've had that number for a about a year now, so far no deaths and no illness's in the tank but for the two snails of course:(


If I have drawn a picture for you, full size versions are available on my DA page

That is indeed very overstocked. You also have the problem of not having full schools of tetras. If you can't rehome any of your fish, don't buy any more as your current ones get old and die. If you can, overfilter your tank and plant it heavily to help it cope with the bioload, or do a lot of water changes. :) Or all three!

Life.

Thanks :) My nieces like looking at him lol

That does seem a bit over stocked. I used to keep my 17g over stocked and it worked out fine. I kept a African butterfly, blue gourami, ghost shrimp, long finned albino bristlenose(just a baby), a black mystery snail, and 8 female bettas. I kept the tank heavily planted with a insanely fast growing red lotus, and other live plants. Weekly 50% water changes and over filtered. This tank was amazing and the fish did wonderful. The only time I had betta aggression was when I accidentally added a male who I thought was a girl, didn't show aggression until 2-3 months later.

Plants are a good thing, they make a aquarium appear bigger and the fish can break eye contact with one another more often, as well as giving them enrichment. Here is a video of my 17g when I had it up http://youtu.be/6cSFS95i6ss

copperarabiani like the video its well edited very nice fish too:)

i got most of my tropical fish from a friend who didn't want them anymore
i don't have anyone who would want them nor do i have a LFS i would trust with them so i'll be keeping them but just in case i find someone who would take them how many would be the right number for me to keep in a 16 gallon tank?
also for now what plants would you recommend? and how do you overfilter your tank?

The tiger barbs might be a problem. They are not the best tankmates for gourami. It could also be a problem with you store's stock. If you want more, you could try getting them from another store.
