I do not think this tank is overstocked, even with the addition of danios and the one minnow. It is a well balanced tank- loaches on the bottom, gourami and the other fish on top.
I am a "heavy stocker" by all your reasoning- I have 24 small fish in a 20 gallon right now. I never have problems with the tank being dirty, or having bad parameters, and everyone has plenty of wiggle room and gets along great.
I just consider bottom schoolers needing a lot of room.

FOR your information, it's been established for like a month and half ago and I do water change every Saturday and Wednesday to keep the water in check.
It sounds like a wonderful tank. Keep us updated on which fish you decide to go with. I might also suggest Harlequin rasboras They're my new favorite schooling fish.

I think adding the apple snails too the cold water is. Good idea read they live longer in it.

I'd try for more minnows. Why don't you want to add him to the tank with the other minnows?
I think the danios should be fine, though.

I bought four more white cloud minnow and a couple of zebra danios and they are shoaling around the tank. Oh and this male whitecloud minnow look so much happier! Thank for the help! (:

I begged my friend to go with me to Petsmart... I had to get some friends for my lonely male minnow. I feel bad for him, of course lol.

I don't want to butt in... But I do at the same time... Kuhlis have a VERY LOW bioload... They are equal to about a fish a third their size in bioload. That tank its nowhere near over stocked... Just thought I would put my two cents in. Please do go on.

Haha, no worries Giz, was thinking the same thing. Plus I don't think they are big on "zooming" around tank either.
