id say three our four red belly's would be ok, and one peco would work. no more then four thought. One piranha per 20 gal of water. Unless its a Rhom, then one rhom per tank.

yeah you could do 6 RBP's in that tank for a while atleast anyways. As long as you maintain it well. If things start to show some weak signs then you can always upgrade or seperate them...

Six reds, between 4 and 7" in size: actually, it's a 80 gallon tank, but I don't think that 5 gallons makes a lickin' difference...

Here is my 75 gallon setup, 10" Red Belly, 8" Caribe, 7 1/2" Red, two 7" red Belly's and a 16" Pleco and no deaths. Yhey actualy shoal very well with each other. I have Aquaclear 5000 powerhead in the tank also, it does 942GPH so that might help, so my answer is 5.

In my 75 I've got an 8 inch Red, a 7 inch Red, and I have two 6 to 7 inch Caribe arriving on Monday. Oh yea, I can't forget my two 3 inch plecos.

Bcollins...Do you have any pics of your tank? Do they have enough room? I might get another red for mine.
