Tube size????

Pretty much explains itself really. If you have questions about tank set-ups, tank furniture, (caves etc) chuck them in here!

Babies dint need any caves.

For older fish you want a tank of about 1 inch diam or 1 inch sq up to about 1,25 inch diam and 1.25 square or the long dimension for rectangle. The length should be about 5 inches. Sorry in USA so not into cms :-).

Get some wood and rounded river rocks. Small zebs feel safest when under/in a narrow space/wood that bigger fish can not fit into or under. They want small, hard to get into places.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
