Hi

I was wondering how many caribas should I buy? I have a 220G 8ft x 22in x 24in. I was thinking about 15 and after a year or so sell a few of them.

Im totally with Groovehead. I know people on this site have differing opinions on this but I always like to overstock pygos. Especially in such a large tank. Just dont go overboard and throw in 41 like someone else on this board

well, once they get to around 8" which will be less than a year you are gonna find your tank is crowded with 15, I would say 8-10 for life at the most. I have 3 9"-10" in a 125g and that really isnt enough room for them

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll go with 15 and when they reach close to 8in I will sell the smaller ones.
