Fresh water flounder????????

i Have a flounder in a 10 gallon (its an 1 inch at most) it is in with some zebras, glofish, upside down catfish, 2 black skirted tetra, and a platy(it was one of a fry that which out of the broad and its parents it was the only one to survive.
I need to kno if it needs to be moved to a saltwater tank and will a 55 be big enough when it gets bigger.

your little guy there is fine at the time but will need a bigger tank as it grows. a 10 gallon tank can hold two adults alone.but you could always go bigger :D flounders can grow up to about 4". as they grow you add small amounts of salt and slowly turn the tank brackish.

thats a truly big flounder there. in aquariums fish are smaller than they would be in open waters, and thats probably another species of flounder.
BTW is thats you fishing?

there are many fish sold as freshwater flounder 99% of them are brackish, there are a few that are true freshwater though.

if you post a pic and include one of its tail and underside I can give you a fairly accurate id and then can say if it is brackish or not.
