Fresh water flounder????????
i Have a flounder in a 10 gallon (its an 1 inch at most) it is in with some zebras, glofish, upside down catfish, 2 black skirted tetra, and a platy(it was one of a fry that which out of the broad and its parents it was the only one to survive.
I need to kno if it needs to be moved to a saltwater tank and will a 55 be big enough when it gets bigger.

your little guy there is fine at the time but will need a bigger tank as it grows. a 10 gallon tank can hold two adults alone.but you could always go bigger :D flounders can grow up to about 4". as they grow you add small amounts of salt and slowly turn the tank brackish.

thats a truly big flounder there. in aquariums fish are smaller than they would be in open waters, and thats probably another species of flounder.
BTW is thats you fishing? :nicefish:

there are many fish sold as freshwater flounder 99% of them are brackish, there are a few that are true freshwater though.
if you post a pic and include one of its tail and underside I can give you a fairly accurate id and then can say if it is brackish or not.
