Shellies!

So I got the okay to get a 20 gallon fish tank, I don't know if I'll be able to get the long 20. Is there a signi***nant enough difference to wait for the long version? I'd keep N. Multifasciatus and N. Brevis and only start off with a pair each and go from there

That extra 6in of space makes a big difference. Both species are fairly mild so they should coexist BUT multis can overpopulate a tank quick and a gang of them might punk out the brevis so be careful of that.
