hi guys
i just got a new tank its 64 litres i'm pretty sure its big enough but i don't know if the fish ive got will be OK.
i have:
3 platties
2 blue gourmes
3 cherry barbs
3 black widows
so my questions are is my tank big enough, how many should i have and will they be ok with my other fish?
thank you.

Your tank is already over-stocked, do you have all of those fish already? You can't really add anything else.

i think alot of pet shops are misleading when advertising as they cram alot of fish into quite small tanks.

Yes and no...this is standard aquarium shop stocking, but you need to understand that their tanks are nothing like yours for volume and filtration.
