Hello,

I have a 65 gallon, 36L x 18w x 24h and I am wondering if I can keep Trophs with success in this size tank? What kind of stocking level would be appropriate?

Thank you.

Pug

I wouldn't recommend it for long term. But it would make a good grow out tank. I'd keep a good group of 20 or so in there until they were about 2" and then I'd upgrade to something bigger like a 75, 90 or 120.

great tank for juvies but 3 foot tank will have things a little tight for the main part of the group when they get to be aggressive adults.

Yes it will work but it is better for juvis and not for long term. 20 would be max. 15 looks better. My wife gave me approval to re-setup my 2-70s with those same dimensions. One will be holding lufubu fry that I want to sell and the other will be a sick tank (or getting a new colony temp tank). But nothing long term.
