My fluval flora is packed with fish according to the aqadvisor, but in reality loking at it , it is really pretty sparsely stocked. Everything is healthy and growing as well as breeding in the tank.|

Betta fish usually look depressed in anything less than a 5.5 or 10 breeder tank. They need stimulation from their environment.
Guppies are happy with little more than a couple buddies.

|CatB||i wouldn't add guppies to a five gallon tank at all, they're pretty zippy swimmers and they do better with more room. better choices would be a betta and only a betta, or shrimp... or you could do some nano fish like microrasboras. guppies might suffer in that setup.|

|steven p||you should be fine, taller tanks arent good as good at doing their job as long ones. However, planted and maintained, there shouldn't be any worries.|

Is Aqadvisor correct on this? (5 gallon hex stocking)
I have a 5 gallon eclipse hex that I wanted to set up to contain just a few guppies and maybe a couple of shrimp. Aqadvisor says that my 5 gallon hex is 204% stocked with only three guppies, is this accurate? I have a 10 gallon Aqueon on it and I thought that surely it could handle three guppies. I do not plan to mix male and female in this tank, just in case you were wondering lol. Thanks in advance for any advice.
