How many fish at once?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 

Looking for information on how many fish can be added to a community tank at one time. My understanding is not to add so much that you overwhelm the bio load. 

We have a 29g planted tank and are hoping to add 6 corys, one pleco and a snail or two. Should we do this in stages?

Thank you 🐠

The trick is, it depends on how much you feed. If you put 1 algae wafer in for the 6 corydoras, or you put 1 in for 6 corydoras, a pleco and 2 snails, it's the same load on the tank. 


In general I recommend adding 1 species at a time.
