    I have set up a 180 gallon/ 720 liter tank which is up and running with a few clown loaches and some green terrors ( I am getting rid of the green terrors). So this tank is basicly going to be my dream tank with my still not very big indo datnoid (he/she is at about 8,5 cm right now), 2 oscars and potentially
    some polypterus delhezi. All of this in an amazon theme. :) But since nobody seems to really talk about it, I thought; why not bring it up on fishlore? Is it a bad idea to throw "small monsters" into their permanent home for them to grow in?

    As long as they are not so small as to not be able to find food I see it only as a good thing, more room and better water parameters :D

    Yea. I figured it would be no problem as long as they did not get sucked in to the inlet of the pump or something like that :p But as you said: more room and better water parameters. I'll just go for it :D Thanks for the reply!

    Sure thing! And you can try to find a sponge to wrap over your inlet (or even a sponge for a sponge filter if you have a HUGE intake like the Fluval FX series) if that is a concern for you.

    Yea, i'll be getting all the fish at a reasonable size so it probably wont be a problem, but... who knows? :confused: I still have a "backup-tank" if anything would go wrong. :D
