Stocking a 46l Edge

Post  Darbinho on Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:44 am

Hi,

This is my first post on here.

I have bought a 46l edge but unfortunately the furniture it will go on has not been delivered yet which is rather frustrating as I can't yet start cycling it. However it has given me plenty of time to plan which fish and think about the aquascaping.

My current plan would appear to break the 1" per gallon rule but the fish I have chosen should not have a heavy burden on the water quality as they are not only short but also quite slim.

The plan is 8-10 Celestial Pearl Danio + 5-6 Endlers + a few Red Cherry Shrimp.

Just wondered what others thoughts were on this - is it too much or should it be ok with the Edges filters and good regular maintenance?

The tank will be part planted.

Welcome!

With a well planted and fully cycled tank, you should be fine. I'd add the fish in fives though. Start with the endlers. Wait two weeks and add 5 danios. Wait another two weeks and add the next five. Add the shrimp whenever, their bioload is minimal.

Look forward to some pics!
