I am currently trying to get a feel for stockage levels at various
facilities as I think we have too many fish per tank in our flow-
through system.  Our current levels are:

A.	Stocking Density:
      250 ml flasks		1 adult
      500 ml flasks		2 adults
      1 L tanks		    10 adults
      2 L tanks		    30 adults, 50 babies, or 50 juveniles
      4 L tanks		    50 adults
      8 L tanks		  100 adults

Is this excessive compared to your system?
