I've read the 1-inch per gallon rule, however I think that it applies to fish that are grown for consumption. I've converted a 20L Aquarium Tank (pic provided) into an aquaponics setup. I have an overflow box that drains to a 10 gal. aquarium with a submersible pump that gives a continuous flow to the box above. I'm growing strawberries.

Currently I have two otos, 3 black neon tetras, 4 neon tetras and a Siamese flying fox. I would like to add a decent amount more of neon tetras both black and standard and possibly more of different community fish if I can get away with it. So, that being said, how many fish could I be looking at so I don't overstock but provide enough for the plants?

Thanks for all the suggestions, they are all welcome and appreciated.

I am way beyond that density, like an order of magnitude, but still growing fish. I need to get rid of some more. Has your fish tank been cycling with just fish and now you're adding a grow bed? If so, you should be able to push it a bit more since you've added more filtration.

Don't listen to me though, I'm quite the novice.

Edit: what part of Indiana are you from? I'm in greenwood
