overstocked tank

  1. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I recently got a betta tank and had a few questions for some more experienced owners. So I have a 5 gallon tank (with heater and filter of course) and in this tank I have: 1 male betta, 2 female koi tuxedo guppies, 1 albino cory cat, 2 blue shrimp, 2 yellow shrimp, 3 ghost shrimp, and 3...

    Hi! So right now I have a 29g with 6 Pygmy cories, 4 false julii cories, 4 albino cories, 6 harlequin rasboras, and 1 betta. My betta thinks he's a cory, he always swims with them and searches for food along the bottom of the tank with all the other cories! Okay, so I do want a small school of...

    Hi! Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm still new :) So basically I have a 29g tank, it does have a filter, heater, and light but I'm not sure sure what models/brand they are, as they're hand-me-downs from my dad who's a fish guy.

    I have been told that my tank is overstocked. I have a siamese algae eater, three snails (not sure what kind), two african dwarf frogs (one male, one female) and a baby betta (about 6 weeks old) in a 2.5 gallon tank. I'm just wondering about the consequences of overstocking your tank. All of my...

    I am starting a 20 gallon long which will have 1 male betta and some corydoras. I was going to get just 4 cories, but I know they like 6 to be completely comfortable. However, I don't want to overstock my tank with 6 cories. How many cories can I safely get?
