Tank Size

Post by nzac »

I have searched through this forum and just can't quite come up with a god answer so here goes...

My plan originally was 6-7 in a 20 long but circumstances made that 11...
I have 5 zebras in a 20 long growing, just picked up another 6 which are currently in quarrantine tanks. What would be a suitable size tank for 11 of these guys once adults? I was thinking maybe a 33 long, 30 breeder, or 40 breeder (cheaper than 30 breeder). Is there a need to go larger?
Kind of limited on space these days (31 tanks running) but will make whatever room I need to for them.
I have several scaley and a few not so scaley creatures living in glass houses in the other room

Main breeder tanks was a 30B for years (10-13 breeders). Some losses of adults over the years. I have 16 F1s and 2 wc in a 75 gal. I have a 10 and 20L for growout but am upgrading one to a 33 long. I find the key is to provide tons, and I do mean tons, of cover.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.

thanks, broke down yesterday and got a 30 breeder for the 11 of them. I have roughly 24 caves a couple pieces of driftwood and some slate to stick in there. If i need to down the road I will make room in a 75 for them or possibly split them if needed since they are all pretty young now. 3 are roughly 1.5 years old others are closer to 6-9 months.

Tank Size

Post by Jaycrict »

I have a group of 4 L201s and a group of 6 L066s. The L066s are only 2. I have all 10 in a 65 long but I want to seperate them. I was thinking of getting either 20 long or 23 long tanks for species only tanks. I havent found much in the way of minimum tanks size for either pleco. I read in another thread on this site that some of you use bigger tanks 30-40 gallon tanks.
My question for you experts is what size would you use for these 2 groups?
