      Currently i have 12 clown loaches ranging from 4 - 8 inch in my 300 Gallon tank.
      and i have 3 stingrays in my 4x2x2 tank, planning to interchange their tank.

      planning to move some clown loaches which are about 4 inchers into my 120 Gal tank, i think about 7-8 pieces . what do you guys think? the 4x2x2 has a 75 gallon sump filter too.

      my rays need a bigger tank, and I'm worried if i add all the loaches into the 120 Gal , tank might be too small for them. since 4 of them are already 8 inches.
      also thinking those 8 inchers will be safe from my rays too since my 3 rays are about the same size.

      LOL, no doubt fishhead will tell you that he clearly only said "some" can hit 12" in 3 yrs (or less) As in only the ones fed magic beans 3 x a day.

      Damnit he's been researching this for weeks now, and he knows! :eek:

      I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. I bet he inadvertently left a "0" off his post. Now 12" in 30 years I can take seriously without laughing.

      Someone else here (who should have known better) actually made that claim a few months back, fishead not knowing any better was simply doing what he does best, regurgitating incorrect info.
