    I was just wondering if you're going to be too much overstocked. Tanks are labelled differently, here...is that 125 litres?

    yes litres. both my tanks are overfiltered(internal and external), do you think the 125 is overstocked?

    Well, with two filters I can't imagine there is a problem with the current stocking. If I remember correctly, the new pleco is 5-6 inches...and the two BN are going in here. I don't know:confused:......seems like a lot of fish.......wait for someone else to comment. I tend to be a little on the conservative side...........:rolleyes: I definitely would not get two...the other tank has a lot of bottom dwellers, so that won't be an option.

    Yeah i dint think qwo would work so im gonna go for 1 in the 125 and the two bns not really looking to add anything to the 180 as stocking is right and water is good and stable.

    I don't think that the BN of the L Numbers will have a problem with each other, all 3 are pretty chilled out plecs, not aggressive, are the BN m/f? 2 males will fight, m/f will breed.:) 2 girls will be fine
