    Is my tank overstocked.?

    Hi, this is my 1st post here so Happy new year everyone !
    My tank is 48 x 20 x 24in - 95 gallons - 360 litres(almost a 4 x 2 x 2ft)I have in there
    5 - clown loach abt 4in
    5 - striped silver dollar abt 2.5in
    6 - scissortail rasbora 11/4 in
    Filtration is 2 canisters eheim 2217 turnover flow is 2000litres and since my tanks capacity is 360 litres the turnover is around 6 times per hour.
    Water change Abt 30-40% weekly water perimeters all k no problems.
    I heard that to house 5 CL one would need a larger tank eventually! since tank is only a 4 footer its a concern for me and to upgrade to a 6 footer is a major problem too much costs and trouble.(especially me wife says no ! LOL!)
    I've tried asking in another forum and most say I'm k but it might
    get cramped for 5 SD and the striped SD grows to abt 5-6inches not as big as the common SD.
    SO I would appreciate any advice, thoughts and opinions on my set up.
    Is there anyone here in Singapore with clown loaches in a 4 footer and has kept them long term ?
    Thanks in advance

    Currently, your tank and filtration sounds more than adequate.

    In the long run, would be ok too tank size wise. Clown loaches can grow pretty big. They grow relatively slow and while they get up to a foot long, I've only ever seen that in wild caught CLs. Filtration wise I'm pretty certain you will be fine too. At the most, water changes MIGHT need to increase frequency/amount once they are much bigger.

    Hope this helps!
