Stocking Level

My tank:
20H gallon
Aquaclear 30 HOB
Coralife 28 watt giving me 1.4wpg

I'm in the beginnings of starting a low tech tank, I currently have some java fern that is doing well and is sending off little ferns.

My fish:
5x Zebra Danios
5x Peppered corries
1x male betta
1x otto (will add 2 more)

Is this stocking too much for a low tech non-co2 tank?

If it is, what would you recommend me stocking my 20H with?

Thanks,
Mako

Sounds fine...you could probably fit a few more fish in there... probably more danios.

I agree, a couple more danios and a couple more otos would be just about perfect.

What does it matter low-tech or high?

I look at it at a tank/fish stocking level....plants and such just lighten the load also if you depend on that if it crashes or goes south then you will have a problem of overstocking on your hands.
