Big fish for 20g long.
Alright so due to some unfortunate circumstances, I have an open 20g long aquarium. I already have two tanks set up with smaller fish such as bettas, neons, and cories. Now I want two try one or two bigger fish instead of a shoal of little ones. Is there any fish that are relatively large but obviously not to large for a 20g. I was thinking something like blue rams but nobody around here has any.

Is there any truth to being able to house a pair of convicts in a 20g long?

I don't know, but convicts are little monster.
Any Keyhole cichlids or bolivian rams in your area?

i would say that convicts are good if kept in ONLY ONE PAIR NO MATTER HOW LARGE THE TANK IS!!! Give them enough room, and if there are no other fish, then they should be good.

I dont know if tey have keyholes or bolivian rams, when I go looking tomorrow Im going to look for them and maybe they got blue rams by now, Im also going to look for jewel cichlids.

I dont know about those, I had too google what they are and they are kinda ugly, the website also said they require 100g tanks.

how dare you say BGKs are ugly.

IonBaller07 06-06-2009 06:15 PM

Haha, allow me to rephrase that, they arent ugly they are creepy. Like a snake-eel swimming through the tank.

How are they creepy?!!

I would say get yourself a common pleco and stick it in the tank by itself...
