    Afternoon all,

    I’m currently thinking about what I want to stock in my 60 litre 60P. It’s a high tech planted set up.

    I was thinking 25 green neon tetras and 10 amano shrimps.

    Thoughts?

    Ancient wisdom says 1cm fish/liter water. But if you have big ample filtration you can go higher. I've seen tanks with 100 large discus in 250 liter tank, it just had a huge filtration on the backside.

    I find 1 amano per 7,5 litre a good ratio for algae cleaning. 10 should be fine in your 60p.

    I have heard green neon tetras will swim more in open space when tank is larger, but you could try it ;). They have beautiful colors I really love them.

    Personally I had a temporary tank 60x30x30 to keep fish and filter a live and they were always hiding. In my 80x40x40 they swim more in the open space.

    You could try AqAdvisor gives you an idea not 100% accurate.

    This is what I had in my 60L:
    • 40+ - Red Cherry Shrimps
    • 8 Neon Tetras
    • 8 Harlequin Rasboras
    • 8 Pygmy Cories
    • 1 Zebra Nerite Snail
    • 5 Amano Shrimp
    I use Aquadvisor to get an idea on stocking. Usually I'm fine if it says I have to change 40% of the water weekly and mainly ignore the rest
