Stock level
« on: December 03, 2014, 10:03:10 am »
Hi all. I was hoping some of you good people could advise on stock levels in my tank. I find aqua advisor a little confusing.
The tank is 170 litres with a fluval 206 external with extra ceramic media added and also run an ehiem pick up 1200 internal as well. Inmates are 10 diamond neons, 10 rummy's, 3 mollies 1 male 2 females, 2 small angels and 2 bristlenose. Am I full and if not any ideas on what might be nice with current stock. Thank you all.

    What are the dimensions of the tank? 170l can be all sorts of shapes. :)

    I would say that you are definitely "full".
    Angel fish may be small at present but they will soon grow.

    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.

    I have got the other half to measure so dimensions are roughly 49w x 39d x 44 h. I currently do a weekly 50 litre water change will this be enough to keep everyone happy and healthy

    49x39x44 only makes 80L if measured in cm. Is this correct ?

    Edit:
    I see your correction 99x39x44 = 170L  *grin*

    Yep could go down the road of blaming other half for measuring wrong but it was all my typo. Do you think 50 litres is ok for water change thanks

    If you're doing it weekly, I'd say that's fine :)

    Do you know what your water parameters are, as you have soft water and hard water fish mixed in there?
    I'd say you're about full, and will be fuller when the mollies have fry.

    "Inmates"? I hope the fish don't feel that way!  *blink*
