Okay. I have a 75 gallon tank with:

1 Aquaclear 110 and an Emperor 280 (160 gal) max total.

Do you all think that will be enough for 4 reds for life?

yeah so 4 is too many for a 75? Okay, see I have 4 in my 30 now and its WAY too small. I hate them being in there but i have to wait to put them in the 75... then the 3 one inchers will go in the 30 for a while and then I will have three reds for sale! Ok. back on topic. anyone else want to voice an opinion?

BTW they arent near full grown yet. The biggest one is about 5-5.5" all the others are smaller. I might put them in for a while until they get bigger then take one out.. We will see.

ok well, if all 4 are smaller then 5 1/2 then yeah you could throw them in a 75 for atleast 2-5 months...pygo's grow slower when they hit a certain amount, i think 7" they only grow a few inch's a year, dont quote me on it cus i could be wrong....but you could def toss those p's in that 75 for a while

You have enough filtration but the 75G won't cut it for 4 pygos for life.
