what size tank for 5 reds, 1 ternetzi. 1 common wolffish, 1 sailfin pleco, and 3 bucktooth tetras for life?
5 - P. nattereri - 100 gallons or more.

1 - P. nattereri (yellow forum) -55 gallon.

1 - Hoplias - 100 gallon

1- Hypostomus - Pleco - 100 gallon.

3 - Exodon paradoxus - Buck tooth - 20 gallon or larger. They will quarrel among themselves.

FeederFish13 you did ask what size tank for life. Frank gave you a listing of the size tank these fish need to be COMFORTABLE and live happily. It's up to you what size tank you put them in and many people overcrowd tanks and claim their fish have no problems. whatever you choose to do just try to think about how you'd feel crammed up. as for the pleco thing, if it's with ps then you probably won't have it that long anyhow

okay would a 150 be ok? I know its not as big as hastastus would like it to be, but would be they be able to live fairly happily in it?
Question: Are you planning on putting these fish all together? If yes, then you are inviting problems not just limited by size and if so, unlikely they will be fairly happy which I'm not sure exactly what that means to you.

Why is it that ppl ask a legitimate question looking for help, and when someone gives them a educated reply (frank in this case) which happens be correct as well ppl get testy. If you ask a question be prepared for an answer, if you want the answer to be what you want to hear then just do what you want.

mdemers883:

i wasnt getting testy, i was just curious of why he felt that a pleco needed 100 gallons. Just because I disagreed doesnt mean i wasnt prepared for an answer. And one more thing: I posted this question for advice. If you are not planning on following ur remark with some advice about what size tank I should use, do not post ur ideas here. If you have something you want to say to me that doesnt have anything to do with this, i dont care. But if you still insist, please pm me.

Once again, I really dont care what you have to say anyway unless it is refering to piranhas, so i will just delete them anyway. There are other forums across the net to help "testy" people.

I apologize for anyone else who had to read this.
