Ah ok, great! That's what I like to hear.
I would recommend a 75 at least, with a male and a female. Two of the same sex fish WILL kill each other.
Having said that, I have one in my 32 gallon (along with two 3" texas cichlids and a 2" firemouth) and it's very happy. No sign of it going over 6" though. Been that size for a good couple of years.
You could well be fine with a 30 for a breeding pair, it's hard to tell how big fish will go in captivity.
Depseys are FANTASTIC fish. Superb predators two. I introduced 15 cherry barbs as dithers 2 days ago. There were 5 left yesterday. He just vacuumed them up. INCREDIBLY fast across the tank and very agile. Great reflexes.
Far better predators than people give them credit for. The 5 barbs I did rescue are actually doing far better in greasers tank!
