1' of fish per 1 gal of water. Fact or Fiction
I have received feedback on fish that I have not being in suitable quarters. I have read, the rule of thumb, 1" of fish for 1 gal of water, however; it appears there is more to this theory than is published, i.e. I have 2 Angels and a Pleco in a 29g tank. est combined size of these fish at maturity 22". 16g tank, 2 platies, 1 Clown Loach, 1 Rubber lip, est combined size at maturity, 12". While close, and clearly not able to know exactly the size of the fish growth, what additional considerations need to be made when populating a tank?
