    Default Tank Size

    I've recently bought 5 Long finned Minnows and they are at present in a cycled 10 litre tank, far too small I know but I had originally intended to put them in a 50 litre 2 ft tank and add a couple of Hillstream loaches.

    I intended to move the fish from the 50 litre (Cardinals and a couple of old Corrys) into a new 35 litre Arcadia Arc, but I've been bought 8 very pretty little Neon Yellow Rasbora, and the only place I've got room for them is the 50 litre.

    If I move the Minnows into the Arc, do you think it'll be possible to get just one Loach

    50 liter = roughly 13 gallons I think, That being said I was wondering if i could put a black kuhli loach in a 10 gallon and I found out you cant. 1 may be able to live in it but as mentioned above they shoal.
    55 gallon, 22 Cardinal Tetras, 11 Celestial Pearl Danios, 5 Sterbai Corydoras, 5 Gold Honey Gourami, 1 Albino Bristlenose Pleco

    This thread is well over 3 years old

    It would be best to start a new one
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
