Looking for stocking advice for my 65ltr female platy tank.
4 full grown female platy - various breeds 2 four month old platy 1 one month old fry - if male will be taken out and added to male tank 1 new born fry - if not eaten and if is male will be taken out and added to male tank
On checking the calculators available I'm around 70% stocked.
Can I add anything else? perhaps a dwarf bottom feeder
Heated rectangle 65ltr
Filters Fluval U2 Interpet CF1
Water parameters are good Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 5 PH 7.2 KH & GH are always low so adding in coral sand
My water is on the soft side (Scottish water) so have been slowly trying to increase the hardness to meet the needs of the platy without shocking them (already did that and lost one) and not using chemicals out a bottle to achieve this.
The softness of my water did cause my cycle to stall, but that's all sorted now thankfully after getting advice on this forum.
My platy journey started with mis-advice from pets at home unfortunately... they told me tank doesn't need to heated / cycled / any water hardness will do and gave a mix instead of all females!
