I LOVE THIS!!!!! it not too crowed and themed. um what r mts? and your not over stocked [censored] those people who say you are it would be one thing is you had two big fish. Its not about length but girth and the type of fish. 3 black kuli loaches =to 1 gallon but you wouldn't keep in one because they need more surface area. Its just they are thinner than a pencil and produce less waste. 2 rasboras equal to 1 gallon and they would do fine in a 1 gallon alone. A pleco or bigger loach or shark would need a 10 gallon w/small type of schooling fish. People just need there facts strait. It the sq inch and measure there belly and if they are a long fish then you want to take the length measur into account beacue they need enough room to turn around. schooling fish that are small can be in large numbers in a 10 or even 5 gallon. larger fish like molly's, plattys, and cat fish produce much more waste then say neon tetras so they need at the least a 10 or if by themselves a 5g. Future marine biologist. Anyways your doing great!
