worst advice ever

Postby Cichlid boy » Wed Nov 09, 2016 8:06 pm

I was in one of my LFS and I was looking at some fish and I hear one of the employees saying to one guy that he can keep around 8 venustus in a 30 gallon tank. so when the employee left I went over to the guy and told him at the very least he needs a 5ft 100 for all them and he looked at me like I was crazy.

8 venustus in a 300 gal tank? no way! 30 gal for 8 venustus is not that odd. It depend on the size of the fish. More fish less territorial aggression.
