isnt the shark a little big for the 10 gallon?

aspects 02-13-2009 10:50 AM

rts only get to be about 6", so it will be pushing it, but still small enough for a 10g

My thinking is that a 10gl is much too small for a RTS, and this tank will be overstocked with the list above. Any possibility of reconsidering the RTS in favor of something else more appropriate for this tank size??? :-?

general rule of thumb for these and most fish is you want a tank deeper then the fish is long, (so the fish has room to turn around), as they max out at 6" and a 10g is just over 10, it will be fine. however, more room will always be appreciated.

Congrats on the cycle finishing! The best thing about owning a tank is stocking it, but I am thinking an adult RTS in a 10g =

i understand that, but the way my rainbow shark darts around the tank, im thinking that the shark will get really hostile in such a small place.

I had a 30G tank and thought it was too small for my RTBS.
Heck, IMO a 10G is too small for a Zebra Danio. They swim a ton.


And please tell me your not adding all those at the same time...

nope, dont worry This is only temporary, they will all be upgraded to a 29 gallon exept the guppies and the platy. :) cody, thank u for ur advice on all of the threads, but do u think u could ever be a little less harsh (u weren't really on this one, just to other people.. ) I am not trying to be rude at all, and we all apriciate ur input, bbut just maybe think b4 u write.. I am really sorry if this comes out mean its not meant to at all!
