I have a 26 gallon tank with an internal and external filter. Tank size is about 2.5meters. I am trying to help a friend who is moving house and can no longer take his fish with him, he has 11 fish which need rehousing which are: 2 clown loaches, 2 cat fish, 2 red tailed sharks, 4 red nose tetras and 1 neon tetra. he lives quite a distance from me and i am trying my best to help but am worried about a few things. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
1) i currently have quite a large stock in my tank and am worrying about overstocking my tank could anyone help me as to wether adding the fish mentioned above into my tank would be overstocking my tank and evidentially kill all my fish? (i currently have 1 banjo, 1 betta, 4 platys, 2 catfish, 3 loaches, 4 neons, 4 glowlight tetras, 2 peppered catfish, 3 whiptails, 2 pearl gourami, 2 small honey dwarf gourmai, 2 blue dwarf gourmai, 1 blue spot gourmai, 1 small suckerfish and 1 shrimp.
2) i have also heard that the red tailed sharks can be quite aggressive and teritorial and again dont want to by helping another kill or harm any of my existing fish
3) transportation what is the best way to transport the fish
4) adding the fish to the aquarium. What is the best way to do this?
I really appreciate any help anyone could give me with this matter.
