it could live there for a while. I don't think they grow particularly quickly but they do get pretty big.

well i really want something carnivorous like a knife fish, but there were some dinosaur bichir. how big do those get and can they live well in a 30? because i can get a 30 for 100 bucks and then find a stand but if i get another 55 i have no idea what id put it on.

whoa whoa whoa...100 bucks for a 30 gallon tank? That's with all the filters and stuff right? I can get a 55 here with a cheap stand for 150...if its just a bare tank thats a steep price. Um I'm not too sure on that one...ive seen em around 10 inches before though and imagine they can get bigger. Not really my area of expertise. I usually keep south american cichlids, rainbowfish, and tetras.

well maybe or economies are different or something because a 30 gallon with filter heater hood lights and i think it comes with the water treatment and some fake plants is 100 here. i bought my 55 gallon tank and filter and junk for 150 no stand. i think i might get a 30 with a knife fish and mabe a leaf fish, have you ever seen them? i think there a species of cichlid but there real wierd. anyways this is long down the road like may since thats my birthday and ill get money then.

yes i have seen the leaf fish and if i had the equipment for them I'm sure Id have a few myself by now. I think they only grow to be 3 inches long or so. They eat a LOT of food (only live fish) however and since feeder fish from stores a rarely very healthy you'd probably want to get a pretty good supply of breeding guppies so you could continually provide food. Very interesting fish though.

haha I know...no one else can find a 37 but me it seems. I know of two small shops that sell them...37 high in fact. People look at me like I'm crazy if I go into a pet store and tell them I have a 37 gallon tank but I swear thats what it is. And if its possible to get a tank into your house its possible to get it out and move with it...itll just take a bit of work.

yeah I've seen those too. Here's what I'd do if I was moving my tank and had to remove the fish. If they didn't need to be out of the tank for too long I'd load em back into plastic bags just like the ones you bring them home from the store in. If it was a longer period I'd put em into buckets with a battery powered airstone and a heat pack to keep the temp up.
