hi ive been offered a big tank something stupid like 300gal
but is there a height thing you have to watch when keeping p's so when there at the bottom
of the tank they dont feel the pressure ov being crushed under the weight ov the water
cause im sure i read somwhere that you shouldn't keep them in a tank over 24" high

Don't worry. I'm sure alot of rivers in S.A. are over 24" deep. Besides fish are able to adjust to depth as they move down. There are fish down to 30,000 feet. P's are tough as nails.

Usually, when we say no to tanks over 24" high, we're disregarding "tall" tanks compared to long (rectangular) tanks. Alot of tanks have odd demension where great deals usually come in shapes not suitable for our kind of fish. P's need the swimming space to go from left to right, not up and down. Thats why we mostly encourage members getting into the hobby on getting the right tank for the type of fish they're planning to purchase.
