I'm glad I found this section otherwise I would have ended up joining another forum to add to my long list! ohmy.gif

Anyway my Piranha tank doesn't look like it's gonna happen due to lack of space (see other thread) so now i'm set on something smaller. I was thinking maybe a 20/30g nano as they look pretty good. As for fish I wanted to have a red tail shark and a bunch of small catfish. My question to you all is recommend me some nice catfish and/or some similar fish good.gif

Red tail shark would need 30g minimum when adult, gets to about 6"

They look pretty cool, sort of like angry Tetras laugh.gif

I'm guessing only 1 will fit?

Keep the ideas coming!

Their bucktooth tetra mate, kind of like mini piranhas and have similar feeding frenzy tendancies. A large shoal of them are quite impressive and very fun to watch at feeding time.

That's what I thought when I saw this http://www.fishdeals...ucktooth_tetra/ laugh.gif

Will a shoal fit in my size tank?

So does the tank need to be long rather than square (which is what I was looking at)?

Right now I've yet to confirm if I can have this size tank but going by my dads sump size which is 36 x 13 x 13 how would that be for the tetras? (Hold on, won't a Sanchezi fit in there?)
