AW: tank size
I think on that point I am a rebell in Killi-keeping. I dont like these very
small tanks as the fish cannot really move. Additionally it is much more
work to keep the water clean in a small tank, except if you have a flow
through system and have a good filter in the sump.
Personally, I let my fry hatch in tanks of about 1/2 gallon. There the fry
stay until about 4-5 days of age. Then they go into tanks of 4-5 Gallons. As
soon as they are about 1/2 or 2/3 inch size, they get into a bigger tank.
The minimal size I have for adult killies is 11 gals. I consider this to be
very small. Next size is 14 gals, then 25, 50 and 112 gals.
Question to the group: Are alle (most) of you keeping your fish in such
small tanks or are there others like me?
