Question regarding stock of my Fluval Edge 23L, also question about lighting

Hello!

My first post in this forum so i'm sorry if i posted this in the wrong category.

Anyways!
I was wondering about how my bioload was looking like in my Fluval Edge 23L
I currently have 10 neon tetras, 10 sakura shrimps and 10 blue dream shrimps, would this be considered overload when it comes to bio?
I've got java moss and monte carlo in the aquarium as well.

I was in the understanding that tetras and shrimps would go well together, but i wanted to focus a bit on breeding the shrimps.. but from some recent reading it sounds like tetras eat shrimplets?

Last question for the day is, how often (Or is it ever needed?) to change the LED light in this aquarium?



Best regards

First of all that tank is too small for tetra they need 2-4x volume at least. The fish alone are too much bioload for that tank.

Also those fish will eat your shrimp babies and adults so breeding won't be too successful with fish in there.

Lastly be mindful you put in 2 different color of the same breed of neocaridina in 1 tank. They will 'cross breed' and throw browns and wilds (no color) babies and future babies will throw random colors. If you want to KEEP them red and blue respectively seperate them to different tanks.

Not trying to be rude with my answer just straight forward. Hope it helps.

For your led question, as long as the leds don't burn out (somebody cheap brands do) you do not have to replace it.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
