realisticly you need a 100 litre for just one IMO with a 20(75 Litre)gallon being the absolute min for just 1 of these little alone a pair if thats what you are hoping for. remember with a bottom dwelling fish length is more important than height.

I would say a 55g minimum for both of them when they reach full size.
