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:Chocolate gouramis get enormous... Unless you're thinking of a different species than I am. Last I read their max size was 6", minimum tank size 20 gal. long.
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:There is no species of hatchetfish suitable to a ten gallon tank because of the school numbers and overall size. They are also really active. Even for pygmy hatchets, a 20 gallon long is the minimum tank size recommended.
I realize that, but that's not exactly the purpose of it. I'll add that when I have time.kuhliloach85 said:This is a great list, but it needs to be taken into consideration with number (amount) and compatibility. This list doesn't give license to stock a 10gal with a betta and 20 sparkling gouramis.
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:Just wondering why you have Glowlights on the list and no other Hemigrammus... or Neons...
Personally I wouldn't keep anything in 10 gallon that grew more than an inch.
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:All right, so I've found two small plecos that are very tiny.
What are your opinions on them? Would they work in a 10g?
Nannoplecostomus eleonorae at 0.87 inches and Ancistrus salgadae at 0.78 inches. Coradee hampalong your opinions?
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.
