Lol keep in mind we all have our own way at doing things. Most people who keep small community fish would be disgusted at a Convict in a 20 gallon tank. While people who keep large predatory species wouldn't see a problem with it.Sea hamster said:Whoa slow down there buddy. I can't even convince people to let me keep a rainbow shark in a 20 gallon.
Single convict is fine in a 17.5 gallon tank. People successfully breed pairs in 10 gallon.CanadianJoeh said:None of the above work in a 17.5 Gallon.
Bettas and tetras are carnivorous fish that would fair well in a 17.5. You could do a school of 8+ tetras depending on the kind.
I meant none of the fish that the OP mentioned could live in a 17.5ParrotCichlid said:Single convict is fine in a 17.5 gallon tank. People successfully breed pairs in 10 gallon.
African Leaf fish is another option and definitely predatory.
If you want a real predatory looking fish then a male Pike Live Bearer (Belonesox belizanus) would be good. Like a mini African Pike. The females get a bit big for a 17.5 gallon but the males would easily fit.
Sorry thought you meant the above suggestions. But you are right, none of the suggestions by the poster would work. I've seen threads like this all before. OP wants a predator we recommend him tetras. Then he gets bored and throws a RTC in.CanadianJoeh said:I meant none of the fish that the OP mentioned could live in a 17.5
