if i went with a 90g i the future I could have them all in there comfrotable i would assume? maybe even a forth if i wanted? I also would want a tank that I could maybe put a big ass Rhom in one day.sccavee said:I started three in a 55 and when they hit around 6-7" it was too tight for them. I now have 4 about 9" in a 75 and I plan to move them to a 180 in the summer.
If it came down to it could I just keep my biggest rb in there? I assume that's more than fine right?ShaneN. said:if i went with a 90g i the future I could have them all in there comfrotable i would assume? maybe even a forth if i wanted?

what are the 90g tank dimensions. anyone have pics of their 90 g? at that size can you still use hang on filters? this hobby is getting expensive, lol. maybe i'd be better of with a spilo in my 55g. I don't think I could find one though.
well i've never owned them before. I've noticed that they should be way bigger for how long i've had them now (almost a year). I'm thinking about cutting down the driftwood so it doesn't take up any space (just sits at the bottom). Im' just trying to see what I can do with the 55G. One big rb would be fine in there for life wouldn't he? and what about a rhom?cmsCheerFish said:ur descretion dude..
Yes, that's me...... I really which I would have snagged your fishdallas said:Shane from shiftin right? Anyways, the guy who had my 55gallon before me had like 4 reds in it that were all like 9". The key was that he had a really good powerhead at the bottom of the tank that kept them all swimming all the time. A rhom would definatly do good in a 55. I would imagine after it gets over 12" it would be time to get a biger tank but until then it would do fine.
bump for th questions.ShaneN. said:1) Is leaving a powerful powerhead at the bottom of the tank a good idea? How could he ever rest?
2) I guess what I'm looking for is what I can do with my 55 g... like can I keep 1 rb for life or 3) how about a rhom for life?
well the reason i'm looking at what i can do with the tank is cause I want some real damn big fish. I really don't wanna start again when they aren't even big enough yet to satisfy me (well you know what i mean)dallas said:I dont think the fish need to rest, but maybe i'm wrong. I think you could keep a red in there for a long time, but i think it kinda sucks only having one piranha expecially when a red is a pack fish. How are you reds doing? are they killing and biting each other alot? If you are going to only keep one red, i recomend you looking for a rhom because they are really aggresive (somtimes depending on the one you get and the size). rhoms also grow slower, so you could have it in your tank for a really long time. You may also want to just get a bunch of new baby reds and start over again. Thats what i'm considering doing.
