Will a 29g tank be ok for my FH or do i need something bigger, i really don't want another 55 gallon tank im my house and thought i might be able to get away w a 29g that the local per store has a decent deal on..
dang... not what I wanted to hear but i asked He was maybe 3.5-4 inches a month ago, now he's like a good 5" and fat. He was smaller than both my oscars when I got him; now he's larger, dunno know why :-? I just don't see him needing a 55 gallon by himself, but im all new to this so i'll take ya'lls word :thumb:
p.s. he's in a 10g at the moment, and pissed :wink: My oscar healed and the FH had to go... Im gettin a tank tomorrow though :fish:
if you want a flowerhorn for that tank, find either a Bonsai flowerhorn, or a Kirin Parrot, they usually dont get bigger then 5-6", which is OK for a 29g. if you dunno what they are, Bonsai's are have a parrot fish body and a flowerhorn face, and kirin parrots are parrotfish with flowerhorn markings and color.
I agree...go with the 75 gal.
I got an okay deal on a used 55 gal. back when I first got my oscar, but I ended up kicking myself for it and sold it off to buy a new 75 gal. setup. I wish I had gotten the 75 gal. from the start.
