Re:Switching tanks


I switched tanks yesterday, and it went better than I could have ever hoped! Everyone is doing fine. They are eating and loving the added hieght! I appreciate your thoughts on the matter, but I didn’t want to wait untill next weekend so I went ahead and made the move by myself.
So now that I have my two seahorses in a 45 gallon 24in tall aquarium, I would like to add to the occupants of the tank. They currently are 2 OR sunbursts, 2 pepperment shrimp, a yasha hashe goby, a Randall’s pistol shrimp (I moved the tiger), and a skunk cleaner shrimp. My water parameters are as follows, nitrates- 0, Amonia- 0, Nitrites- 0,PH- 8.2, and my temperature stays at 76. I have alot of plants in my tank, which has really helped keep the water clean. (3 different types of calerpa, 2 shaving brush plants, 1 ogo plant, and a mermaid tail). I would like to add at some point, 2 more OR sunbursts, a bumblebee shrimp, and an orchid dottyback. Would this be possible with my new setup. I currently have your standard hang on tank 35gph filters and a magnum HOT filter that runs about 50gph. Would I need a more powerful filter to house my intented occupants?
Thank you all so much for all of your help!
Thanks again,
