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.

At 4" they should be fine for quite some time.

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.
