Hey everybody,

Ok, here's the scoop, I got a baby RBP in July, and he (Nibbler) is doing very well. This May, I'm moving out of the dorms and into a duplex, which means that I'll finally be able to use my 45 gallon tank. First and foremost, would it be possible for me to introduce any additional RBP's? I've heard no, because he is/will be so much bigger than them (He's about 4.5" right now), but I have also heard yes, because he will need to redefine his territory in the new tank. Anyway, just wondering if I could get a little input, I'd like to get 2 more, from what I've heard 45 gallon is big enough for 3. Any input would be wonderful, thanks in advance.

You could do 3 in that tank.
Maybe not for life but they should be o.k. for a while.
As far as size goes you could risk smaller P's and cross your fingers, or grow them out in a different tank till they catch up.
A third possibility would be to look for a couple of P's to add that are already the size of your P you already have.

a 45 gallon tank is NOT big enough for 3 rbp. It might not even be big enough for one when it is fullgrown.
