if you keep up on tank maintenance, you could add a couple more.

are you buying babies?
if so, buy a few extra, you will have casualties
maybe 8 babies

I am gonna have a Piraya, Caribe, Tern, and 2 wild reds in my 75 until about 8 inches then Im upgrading to a 240 after college, If you are planning on upgrading when they become 8-9 inches I would say you could have 5 RBPs. Or a mix, But it will get crowded then Its time for a upgrade.

I had 3 that were 6 inches in a 75 before I upgraded..That worked out just fine..If you want to throw in a fourth go for it but keep in mind overstocking leads to more water changes and added aggression.

No offense but I think saying only 1 red in a 75 for life sounds a bit rediculous...Then again I could be over looking some logical reason you say this...From everything I have ever read 20 gallon per fish for life is a good rule of thumb on pygo's..Could you elaborate on why you feel only 1 in a 75 for life?

wow

thanks for all the help.

I am going to set it up and start out with 5-7 little reds then when they get bigger sell them off and probably just stay with 3-4.

also another question if i can get 3-4 in a 75 for life then can i get 2-3 in a 55 for life?
