Ruby Green Questions

Postby thegoose » Sat Jan 21, 2012 2:07 am

Have a 50 gl tank and am thinking of stocking it with ruby greens, how many? and possibly what other tank mates would make a good match?

You could care only small 2-5 fish or 1 medium. Your tank is really small.

That's silly to think his tank is too small! That's a big enough tank to hold a good group I have had a group of 2m and 9f in a 40 breeder which is tha same footprint. I hardly believe this site would recommend in the cookie cutter 29 gallon! Which is a 30x12 footprint.
Poster ruby greens in that size tank would fine try to get a couple of males and 5 females and you will love them.
alot of tanks..lol
