Fish Table

This is a table i have made after researching all different types of fish i have come up with this.


1/2 inch = 1/2 inch Per 1/2 - 1/4 Gallon (this is mostly for the smaller tetras)

1 inch = 1 inch Per 1 Gallon

2 inch = 1 inch Per 1 Gallon

3 inch = 1 inch Per 2 Gallon

4 inch = 1 inch Per 4 Gallons

5 inch = 1 inch Per 5 Gallons

6 - 9 inch = 1 inch Per 6 Gallons

10 - 14 inch = 1 inch per 10 Gallons

15 +++ inch = 200 + Gallons


Each one of these is PER fish
This also depends on the fish species.

Example: Oscars only need about 60 - 80 gallons EACH but a pacu needs 150 + gallons each for the size of them. And although the table says oscars need 120 gallons they really wont mind that ether. Remember start with the biggest tank you can afford and go from there, Even if it means you cant get your Pacu :P

I could I suppose...but others have done good jobs...

I just wish one of the big petstores would 'take up the cause'...

...or if someone came up with an attractive or somehow innovative betta tank...5 gallons or more...maybe we'd see some change...

...oh yeah...and outlaw the use of bettas in a bowl for weddings...what a horrifying centerpiece...

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I guess I didn't read all of this. I don't get the wedding part. I do feel sorry for them in those tiny bowls, but I wouldn't give them a 55 either maybe a 5 or 10 gallon tank.

I do get what Rue meant though. She meant to say that the fishbowls filled with bettas are used as part of decorations during the wedding receptions. Oh how I hate that part.

I do find the chart a little confusing.

If I am reading this right, to have 5 angels you need 125 gallon tank, the same with 5 BN pleco, correct? Each getting to 5 inches in length. Not questioning the table, it could be very useful. Just a little clarification for me I guess.

I know this isn't neccesarily what you have to do either, I just really want to make sure I am reading the table right.
