Plz delete - How many Endlers for a 6G tank?
 
Hi All

I just added 3 red flame endlers to my 6G GLA rimless tank. It is a low-tech tank. I will be ordering some anubias petite to add to the tank. I also added in about 10 RCS from my 55G.

My question is, I have another 3 endlers. Do you think 6 endlers is too much for a 6G tank?

I am waiting for the fissidens moss to grow on the left for my shrimp. The micro swords were just added a month ago.. hoping those grow a little more. Now to buy some anubias petite to add in and possibly some other small plants.

Here's a pic of my tank today after adding in the RCS and endlers:

Oooh! I just got a few Endlers for my son's tank! They are so amazingly colourful! Kind of like a patchwork quilt of a fish! :)

As far as bioload is concerned 6 endlers will not be an issue, especially since it appears you're running a canister. It becomes an issue of how many you can ethically stuff in there, I personally have 8 endlers and a bunch of shrimp in my heavily planted 5.5 gallon, all of them are happy and healthy with no aggression between any of the inhabitants so in my opinion you'll be just fine with 6 endlers.
