Can I add 1 more adult red to my 55 gallon that currently has 3? The 3 in there right now are all approximitely 8 inches. They look totally fine space wise and was thinkin about adding 1 more. Just let me know what you thin, or what your experiance is with this! Thanks

i had 4 juvys in my 55 until my smallest totally friggin disapeered. im talking nothing. bastard didnt even leave a note or anthing.

but yea i think 4 is coo, a little crowded but as long as they are fed a lot there shouldnt be too many problems.

This is going to be that arguement of the overstockers vs. understockers (AKA THE RIGHT WAY LoL.). You can stuff anything into any size tank. In that since, yes 4 reds in a 55 is possible. Personally I think that 3 is pushing it too far. (of course I mean good sized, 6+ inches). But thats just me.

4 in a 55 gal would be ok depending on size of your Ps. Personaly I would prefer leaving it at 3 due to territorial space for each and having your Ps eliminate each other in time.

I would say yes it can be done and has been done and will be done.

But its best to have 3 or 5, keep them in odd numbers so its harder to pair up and bully each other.

It can be done but i can´t recommended it, you need enough room for healthier and happier Ps...upgrade to a bigger tank if you want more Ps or stay with 3...!

Thanks everyone! I don't think I am going to do it, BUT if I run across a real good looking red belly, it's going to be hard to pass up
