Hm.. you should let the plants grow some more before adding more fish. You already have the ~1in of fish per gallon.

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

They should be ok in there. My filter is powerful for a 10g (1000L/h).
As long as they're not nipping at each other's fins... that is.
I like overstocking

I heard flying foxes will eat shrimp. And flying foxes are a type of SAE?

I was told Flying Fox IS SAE! I don't know really. So far it has been a trial & error learning experience lol.

People are telling me they are two different fishes lol. And flying foxes will eat shrimp (and algae) whereas SAE will only eat algae. No idea myself though...

From wikipedia,

Flying Fox:


Cambodian Logsucker:


SAE:


And My Fish:


Mine resembles an SAE a lot, don't you think? Not really sure anyway. So long as it eats algae, you can be a shark for all I care lol.

The first pic is really different. see the mouth area and the reddish coloring.

but of course, they are all from the same species group as written in wikipedia.

I notice something cool with my fishes today.
they seem to know when i came over the tank to feed them - they would flock near to the front glass and near to the top surface... it's a nice feeling..! I guess they start to trust me as their master.. hehe
