Unread postby pinaki_pal » Sat Mar 28, 2015 9:11 pm

Hi Guys is it possible to keep full grown Vieja Argentea in a tank of size 48*18*18 ??
Seriously fish says a pair can b kept in 48*18*15 tank ,,other forum says bare minimum tank size is 75 G ,,,mine is a 8 G short 67 G.

Please note Ill keep only that vieja in tank .... its for long term basis,,,, so asking experts before buying

i would strongly advise keeping an argentea by itself.it will be shy and dull.if you can lay your hand on some juviniles and grow them out it would be a better option.
