Stocking Density Calculator
Tank Dimensions   L   W   H  
 

The Fish Research List stocking density calculator is different from all the others.   The are several ideas about how to properly stock an aquarium and they all seem to work.   Here I have created a calculator that accounts for all of the available methods for figuring the amount (adult length) of fish that can live in your home aquarium.  Still, it is only prudent to keep close watch on your fish and invertebrates to ensure that they are healthy.  If signs of distress are evident, consult your local fish store (LFS) for the solution.  As always it is advised to build your stock slowly over time to avoid shocking your system and competition.

For a reef aquarium it is advised to stay close to the minimum stocking density for your tank size when planning to purchase and stock fish as your cleanup crew and corals are also animals that need to be accounted for.
