Stocking helpf for 6 g. nano????
I have a moderately planted tank that has been set up for a few weeks. It is a 8 g. aqueon cube; however, my calculation based on the size is 6 g. prior to adding driftwood and 2 inches of eco complete. It has a moderate intensity LED (equivalent to about 3 watts per gallon).
I have a Beta in there with 1 amano shrimp and 1 cherry shrimp.
I would like to add 6 gertrude's raininbowfish which are about 1" each but many folks on-line suggest that is TOO many fish.
Can this size tank handle this many fish? What will go wrong if this is overstocked? Any suggestions or ideas welcome.
I'd like to fertilize less in the future but I currently do Flourish Excel (recommended dose) every 2 days and Flouish Comprehensive as recommended by bottle.
