I was in my LFS yesterday buying my new Tetras when I saw about 30 tiny BN's in a tank, as I'd intended to buy one later on, and as I only bought 5 Tetras, I brought one home with me.

I'm now wondering if I could possibly have enough room for another in my 2ft x 1ft x 1ft tank which is now home to 5 Golden and 5 Ember Tetras. They really are very tiny at the moment and I may have to move them on in a couple of years, but it does seem a shame to leave the little fellow on his own.

I'd say only one unless you can get a guaranteed pair. If you end up with two males all hell could break loose later.

Cake or death?

plus they get to be 5 or 6 inches when full grown /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
I always keep only one pleco per tank, but you can give him a catfish friend. I have a Marble sailfin pleco in with three pictus cats in one tank (which is a larger tank than yours). In your size tank I have four corydoras cats and a bristle nose, and in a third tank I have a golden/chocolate pleco who is six inches and is friends with a Siamese Bumblebee catfish (siamensis).

OK thanks they are too small to sex at the moment, it's probably one of the only fish that I can sex /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> except for Bettas and some Cichlids.

I have one little old Otocinclus in the tank who I forgot to mention in my last post, to be honest he's so old and I didn't really expect him to survive the change over, but he's still going strong. I just hope the BN leaves him alone but they are about the same size at the moment.
