I chose the african/brown Knife because most aquarium specimens will be 4 to 6 inches in length, although yes it is possible for them to grow up to 12 inches..I'd have to move it to a bigger tank if that happened. I'll be buying a smaller one to start in the tank or coarse. The african knife also likes alot of vegitation which will work well.
The size for the rainbows at time of purchase is 1-3/4" to 2-3/4". Again, if they get too big I'll have to move them.
This always gives me an excuse to start a bigger and better tank anyway :D
As far as the Skunk Loaches go, They are the most agressive loach. But I've heard if you have a few of them, I'm gonna move my number from 5 to 4, they keep eachothers attention and don't bother the other fish as much. I figured also the other fish are equal size if not bigger.
I'm still leaning towards the South American Puffer even though my girlfriend thinks the green puffer is so cute. I don't want to put the green puffer in an enviroment it won't do well in.
