Do I have an over crowded tank?


  • Favorite Answer

    Depends on the dimensions and the filter. I’d say it’s right at the limit and certainly no more room for more fish. However, if you get a water testing kit and check the nitrate you’d know for sure.

  • I would cut down the zebra danios to or so and get rid of the pleco. The Pleco may seem fine but they grow large. Instead of a Pleco add some Cory catfish, they would make a nice addition to your tank and are also a great clean up crew. Oh yeah and if you think “well I’ve had my pleco for a few years and it hasnt grown to fast, I’ll just keep it” don’t. That’s just it’s growth being stunted. I had a common Pleco in a gallon at one time for about years, he didn’t grow much until I realeased him into my gallon pond. After just months he had grown more then ever before. My point is keep the zebra danios and not the pleco as harsh as it sounds.i hoped this helped and good luck!

  • The Pleco will need to be in a bigger tank probably within a year. The or SO other fish is about fish to many right now. You are going to slowly kill them by having that many in there. It’s obvious your dad knows nothing about fish or how to set up an aquarium. Please do research before you start adding all those fish. I’m not trying to be rude but that is a ton to many my friend. I hope you are doing water changes every – days with that many fish and have a hell of a filter… Good luck

  • The pleco needs to go. It will grow to two feet long, and needs to be in gallons or more. This is one of those situations where I would use that ” for each gallon. ” of fully grown fish per gallon of water. I’d say don’t add any more fish.

    is the russian dwarf hamster and campbell hamsters are the same?

    Answers Favorite AnswerThanks Cloud Nine I consider myself to know a lot about Hamster and even I have had a lot of trouble knowing for sure what species and breeds are which. Syrians are easy! But In the Dwarf family it goes like this.Russian,Chinese,Robo as being the main three I think people know are being different. But you also see these names from most to least common.Winter WhiteCampbellDjungarianSiberianProbably others as well... And I know that some of these are the exact same type of hamsters or very close hybrids etc. But your answer Cloud Nine cleared some things up however it's still a difficult thing to remember correctly. I personally have only had the campbell dwarfs I guess. And yes they can be aggressive etc. But it all depends on there personality. If your really luck, know what your doing and have a good cage setup most of the problems with caging them together or handling them can be prevented or reduced. Sometimes they are very friendly and it's kind of scary!Source(s): Owned Syrian Hamsters + Russian Dwarf HamstersThat's a tricky question to answer.

    hi, I hope you can all help me!! I am trying to persuade my mum and dad to get me a pet i think if a dog was cheaper they would get me another one!! thanks xxThere are always free to good home ads in the papers. Adopting from shelters are usually fairly cheap.The problem is not the intial cost. Dogs are expensive, regardless of breed. Food, grooming, vet visits, neutering, shots, tags, toys, leashes, dog bed, collars, training, are a few of those expenses. Then if the dog gets sick, more money.The cheapest dog would be a dog you rescued from somebody who can no longer care for their dog. On craigslist, there are tons of people who have to find new homes for their dogs because they're losing their home. Many are offering their pets as free to a good home. There are some wonderful dogs out there that don't deserve to be put down.I'm guessing your parents realize the responsibility of owning a dog which means shots, grooming, walking, training, boarding at times, flea prevention products, heartworm prevention, healthcare. Maybe you could ask them in what ways you could help with the dog that would make them Read more

    Leopard gecko not ate in a while?

    Well, i bought a tangerine leopard gecko on the 8th of january 2013 to go with my male normal leopard gecko. He eats perfectly fine but everytime i feed her, she never eats anything? she might be eating mealworms in the night but im not so sure. Also, her poo is a little runny if you know what i mean?Update:please reply, i just really dont want her to be sick1 Answer? Favorite AnswerLike us geckos can get tummy bugs! Don't worry females often stop eating before they lay eggs. This may be the case if the two have been doing things don't worry but this may be a poosibility. Try feeding her a waxworm as they are addictive and geckos favourite food, don't however feed her many as this makes it worse, give he one or two if she eats them, this can be enough to bring her back onto her food. If she is on sand it may be impaction, this is unlikely if she was on sand before. (They eat carefully on sand because of this, she may not be used to it) if this doesn't work or settle take her to a vet, sometimes Geckos do this Read more

    My cats lower abdomen seems hard and slightly swollen?

    My cat is about a year old, she has not yet been fixed, but we are going to soon (shes a rescue cat we recently got). She was in heat about a week ago and I noticed her lower stomach, towards her "lady parts" was swollen and seemed hard, I thought that it had something to do with that. But shes out of heat now, and her stomach is still hard there. She seems like maybe she has lost a slight amount of weight, but I'm not 1% sure. Other then that, she seems fine, no other problems. Any thoughts? Should I take her to the vet sooner? Her appointment is in two weeks.2 ✅ Answersyou're able to have her check out once you carry her in to the vet. i does not recommend getting her vaccinated at that component inspite of the incontrovertible fact that. Vaccines are in elementary terms meant for healthful animals. (It says so maximum suitable on the bottle)Yes, call the vet and see if you can get it moved forward. It could be nothing, but if it isn't, it's the kind of thing needing immediate attention.Source(s): I am an animal care technician, and have lived Read more
