you can keep it for now in there, but dont be suprise if you got some kill, or eaten... best way is sell some fish...leave about 5-6 fish. you can have them full grown in 180g...or 150g.

alots of people dont care about 20g rule, but i do...but that just me.

If you cant afford big tanks and decided to go with overcrowding the rbp, make sure you have good filteration (x2), change water 2-3 a week, and take out any left over food asap. prepare for fin nips and alot of problems.

i bought this setup for $150 (55gallon tank, stand, gravel, rocks, light, 2x aqua clear 300's, stealth heater, 2 air pumps) i may be new to fish keeping but i think thats a good deal. im only 19 but i see a long future of fish keeping. i have a 10 gallon tank under the 55 to put my feeder guppies and make sure they are all healthy and disease free.

You are off to a good start. Make sure their diet is not mainly guppies. 90% of their diet is fish with white meat, krill, shrimp, pellets,catfish, earthworm. Good luck !!

i have 3 rbp in a 50gal tank and they did fine until they hit the 5 in. marker it seemed to be a bit tight. For now you tank it sweet, although they grow fast. I am picking up a 180 gal tank to give them more play room, now i also can add more of those little buggas.
