A very handy website is www.aqadvisor.com

You put in your tank and filter details in the boxes then search for and add the fish you have and it gives you approximate stocking level and if there are any major compatibility issues.

As a guide you want to stay around 85% stocked. If you’re under that you can then add in any fish you like the look of to see what the site says.

It’s not foolproof so it’s always worth double checking but it’s great for a start point.

Hope that helps Smile

Hello. Smile
I'd say you're about stocked for a 57l.
Mind you, because of your auto-corrupt, I have this vision of a small Michel Roux swimming about in an aqualung in there now..... Rolleyes Wink Big Grin
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! Big Grin

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!
