Cool...Red bellies grow super fast so careful on the 10 gallon -- it may only be good for a month with a baby 2 inch red belly...

Hi there everyone this is our first entry/inclusion into the forum.
We've (my son) has 6 1" RBP's in a 30x12x15 tank which I believe is 92Ltrs. But hopefully within a couple of weeks they'll be moving to larger tank 48x12x15. He's had them for nearly a month now. Fed daily on frozen Blood worm and given a treat of Live Shrimp at the weekend which he and one of his friends enjoyed watching and the fish looked as though they enjoyed as well. He keeps asking when he can put feeders in. :eek:oh2:
Those 6 red bellies will grow quickly, and in probably about 1 1/2 years will need a 150 gallon tank. They are messy eaters, and the tank will need to be heavily filtered, preferably with a sump. Your circulation pump will need to turn the water over about six times per hour. Fascinating fish. I have had red bellies in the past

Have 4 RBP that are 1 to 2 inches long in a 65 gallon aquarium. Once they hit 4 I will be getting a 120 gallon aquarium. Also there's a red tail catfish that cleans the bottom, piranha's don't mess with him.
