Hi, I wonder if I can have my 3juveniles rbp in a 28gallon for like 1 or 2 months more. I'm looking and looking for bigger tanks, and I'm going to buy one as soon as I got the money, but that won't happen before 1-2 months. They are now about 2in, and in 2months they'll be around 4inches right?

What do you think?

Well, the pump I have makes a pretty good circulation/current in the water, very powerful one I think. And so far the water have been crystalclear and almost no No2 and No3, and about 10GH, and 6,5pH. If this continues, you think it will work?
A buddy of mine (no idea of the minimum dimensions and gallons per p) for some years ago, had 2rbp in a 6gallon!!! They died around 4inches I think, disease (not very surprisingly though).

Dont know how this became an equipment question from a P info request.


What size are your so called juvi's?? When stateing juvi's, most people would think 2-4"ers... and three 2-4"ers in a 28 gal is a set up for disaster to happen. Ps rapidly grow from 1" to 6" within 5-6 months, and with 3 growing Ps in a 30 gal, fights will occur for space which injuries or even cassualties may occur.

now that is a recipe for disaster. 3 rbp's at 7" will not do well in a 38 gal. Yeah they are your fish, so do what you want. But leaving them in there that long is definitely not a good idea.

To the original poster, your fish should be fine for a couple more months in that tank, but no longer.
