I'm thinking of a different species. Sphaerichthys osphromenoides. They get 2 inches. I have seen them on lists of this being their min tank size......junebug said:
Thanks!junebug said:ChilI rasboras could be added to the list, they are only a tiny bit bigger than dwarf rasboras, as could all species of microrasbora (that I know of)
I know, which is why they aren't on the real list.junebug said:
I realize that, but that's not exactly the purpose of it. I'll add that when I have time.kuhliloach85 said:
I have neons and cardinals on the questionable list. The other Hemigrammus like rummynose and Red base tetras get 2 inches or more... and the max? size for glowlights is 1.6 inches.hampalong said:
The sizes are the other way round according to FishBase, but they're Standard Lengths, so don't include the tail. And they're not maximum sizes, but the sizes of the specimen/s that are known. Without a picture on FishBase, you're unlikely to find them for sale...Anders247 said:
Good idea, it does need some editing & putting in a more easy to read format.Anders247 said:Yeah, I know.... I should move all of the species that don't have a common name to a different section. I'll work on that.
Have to disagree with you there, since the inch-per-gallon rule is actually very inaccurate. How, you may ask? Well, let's explore why.flaffypon3 said:Keep in mind, its 1 inch of Fish per gallon (UNLESS fish are territorial, then it can vary on the size of the fish.). NOT 1 fish per gallon.
So, you could put 10 Neon Tetras in the 10 gallon. But say if you want Mollies or Platys, you can only put 5.
Id recommend 4 Cherry Barbs and 1 Dwarf GouramI for a nice color combo. Also a couple plants might look nice in there.
I understand. He's saying you could take a 3 inch fish for example and do 3 times 10 and then it needs 30 gallons. Even though this isn't accurate you just kinda use common sense I guess.Anders247 said:
this just doesn't add up... it would mean my 20H would be horribly overstocked with 8 mosquito fish... even though they are fineFishguy11 said:I understand.

Exactly. That's what I said. It isn't very accurate.shrimpaholich said:this just doesn't add up... it would mean my 20H would be horribly overstocked with 8 mosquito fish... even though they are fine
