Confused on this one. Every Mollie I have seen has only been about 2 1/2 inches full grown. What type gets large? Even looking it up I don't see anywhere that says different.Smalltownfishfriend said:I would not do mollies in a 20 gallon. They are large and messy. How about a few platies instead?
how are they messy? I know people who have them and they are just fineSmalltownfishfriend said:I would not do mollies in a 20 gallon. They are large and messy. How about a few platies instead?
Pictus catfish also need a 4 foot tank. You can't keep big fish in a 20 gallon, unfortunately.I like fish2345678765 said:whoops I thought you meant zebra plecos.
That needs a 150+ gallon/6 foot tank. I think you should do some research on some small fish that can live in a 20.I like fish2345678765 said:could I get an eclipse catfish?
I have seen some that were four inches long!!! They have a surprising high bio load considering. Even the smaller ones produce quite a bit of waste on my experience.I like fish2345678765 said:that's what I thought too!

I had a rainbowshark that I had to return to the store maybe I could get him back?
Honestly... bizaliz3 has lots of angels that are quite large. Go look at some pics of hers and ask yourself if you would really put a fish the size of a man's hand into that small of a tank. If taken care of angels do not stay small. I considered one for my 29 gallon but decided against it due to the size, even though 29 is considered the minimum for them. If you keep up with your water changes and are set on mollies they could work. I don't recommend it but it is up to you. Same with the pleco. He is going to contribute quite a bit of waste to your tank so if you really want one be prepared to spent a good bit of time cleaning up after him!!I like fish2345678765 said:coould I maybe just get 1 as a centerpiece fish? the dimesions are Size: 20 Gallons: 24 in L x 12 in W x 16 in H
