I just got a 4-5 inch rhom today. I just got him acclimated to my tank. He should love it considering the lfs's water was super high in nitrates. My water is better!!! I was wondering how i should measure for tl? Also he is in a 20 gallon tall. How long can I keep him in there? His eyes have not yet changed to red either...but it will be sweet when they do!

He should be fine in the 20 for a while, but I would look at getting a 55. The small serras I have had are much more active in a larger tank.

Your 20 gal is sufficient for now. It'd be better if it was a 20 gal long, not tall.. but it'll still do. Plus you'll have enough time to get a bigger tank in a couple of months. Both my Rhoms are in a 30 gal show.. one at 5" the other an 8"., and no complaints.

Are you guys sure he will be ok in a 20high for now? It seems like he doesn't have much room. maybe i should take out some of those fake plants. Or I could put him in my 55g rbp tank with the five 3 inchers in there....

20 High is not very good because it's not very long as you can tell. But don't put him in with your reds!!!!!
