    I have a 30 gallon (110l) tank.
    Running built in internal filter and a Fluval U2

    In the tank I have:

    – 6 rummynose
    – 8 cardinals
    – 6 sterbai corys
    – 5 zebra danios
    – 2 german rams
    – 1 flash pleco (stays under 5 inches)

     

    Just wanting some opinion on whether I’m overstocked or not. Thanks :)

    Your stocking is fine and indeed there is some room to increase numbers.  Both the rummy noses and cardinals do better in larger numbers, so I’d suggest ten of each.

    Does sound fine. Be aware that the temperature requirements of the zebra danios may differ slightly from the other fish, I’ve always considered them to prefer water at the lower end of tropical whereas the other fish you have like it a bit warmer.

    Have you got any wood in your aquarium? The Flash Plec (assuming it’s Panaqolus albivermis) would probably appreciate it.
