For Christmas this year I received a five gallon starter kit, which I want to use for dwarf panda guppies. Unfortunately I can't set up the five until we move. For a few months, will this stocking list overwhelm my ten gallon?
Please keep in mind that the seven guppies would really end up being one endler, one regular male fancy gup, three reg. females and a dwarf panda pair. As for my corys, three of them reach and inch and the rest are just under, maybe .75 inches max. My betta Sam stays generally one one side of the tank and is very chill, having lived with guppies/corys all his life and being older, I doubt he'd been aggressive with the fish.
I have 7 pygmys, 5 tail spot corys, a betta and one gup+ one endler and the snails. I do have tons of live plants in my tank (Wisteria, duckweed, stargrass, java moss, etc) and am going to be getting a lot more soon. I do weekly 35% changes, the tank is over a year old, and everyone is happy.
I do have another ten gallon with one betta, two bronze corys and 5 salt and peppers, so I could split up the new additions with male guppies in one tank and girls in the others.
Sorry this is so complicated! I really want to find out if this is overstocked, bc I do know Aquaadvisor tends to go for lighter stocking. (Which nothing is wrong with)
I will be doing twice weekly changes if I end up adding all the new guppies to the one ten gallon. I hope I explained this well enough. I'm kinda confused about the whole stocking guidelines.
