Hello guys. Last month I posted if ehiem 2213 is strong enough for a 3ft by 1.5ft by 1.5ft tank. Most of you said it's fine becos my fish stock is low and it's quite planted.
My tank now has 3 otos, 1 angelfish and 4 albino corys. 1 cory has grown to be abt 2.5 inch big. The rest are still abt 1 inch only. They are still surviving. These are from my old tank.
I have also added 5 blue rainbowfish, 1 bristlenose pleco and 12 white cloud mountains. I am lucky that my angelfish doesn't really bother the smaller fishes. In fact with all the activities, it seems to come out more often from hiding.
Questions: Is my tank overstocked? The blue rainbows are very active swimmers and greedy too. I have to overfeed so my other fishes can get food but I'm not adding new filter. The ehiem is abt 3 weeks old and there r dirt in the tubes already. Is it too fast to have such symptoms? I do abt 10 to 15% water change weekly.

i would say it's ok, until i saw your pleco. plecos produce a lot of waste, so it might be a good idea to get the biggest filter you can afford. always good to overfilter.
fish keeping is first and foremost about water quality. take care of the water, and the fish will take care of themselves (with feeding, of course).
