My tank is 35L.. I have 5 platy, 3 small minnows and now 8( that I know of) platy fry. I also have a Plec and a nerite snail. Now the fry are getting bigger it's clear they need more roomI have been lucky to have a LFS that will take them and give fish food in return. How many fish do you have and what is the size of your tank?
Your adults will need a bigger tank alone, plecos get quite large, even the smallest pleco species gets too large for a 10 gallon/35 litre tank. If you keep the pleco and adult platies and minnows, check what pleco species you have and how large they get as adults first, then look for the minimum tank size they need. At least a 20 gallon for most plecos, 30 plus would be great.What size would you recommend?
I've no idea to be honest. My tank isnt heated, it's temperate so I don't know if that makes a difference to the species I can keep. I'll try and get a good photo of him. He's not much bigger than my platies but his head splays out a bit like a ray of that makes sense.I would personally get a 29g tank. They are easy to find and maintain. What species is your Pleco?
Sounds good. Glad you did some research, and found out what you needed.Ok, I've done some research and my pleco isn't a pleco (as sold) it's a Hillstream Loach. Apparently they only grow to about 3-4 inches but like to live in groups of 3. I'll need to get a bigger tank now to get little Wesley Jnr some buddies.
