I think it totally depends on tank size. You need to have a six foot tank but 12-20 in a 125 should theoretically be successful.

From all of the info that I gathered over the years that I have been shopping for petros, I have found that at least 20 in a 125 would be suffice. I have moshi and fasciolatus in my 125 now. I got them as fry and they are growing well. The moshi have grown faster fasciolatus but the group ranges fro 1"-2.5".I am adding 10 BG's next week, this is my first petro colony. I have read more positive stories then negative so I hope that all works out.Good luck with your petros.
