Overstocked?


Fairly new to aquariums here, just wanted to know if my 2.5 gallon tank with 1 male betta, around 10 ghost shrimp, and 1 black mystery snail is overstocked. Thanks for any input

It would be overstocked because most mystery snails are recommended to be housed in 2.5gs each. I would stay stick with 1 male betta and just a few ghost shrimps.

Just fyi your male betta may eat your shrimp...just depends on his personality, so keep an eye on that.
