In Response To: Re: A question for Matt.... (Matt M.)

Yeah I got it...you're just taking it as it comes right? That's what I did...but it came too fast for my 20 gallon and cost me a clown from the stress of the overcrowding. I got a 55 along with my 20 now, so I'm alright. Fluvals are also excellend filter systems, if you know how to use them that is. Some people have trouble restarting them, but mine works just fine. I had to pick between the magnum and the fluval, and I decided to try the hagen filter...and I am very pleased with it.

I do dissagree that 3 5 inch clowns in a 29 is not packed. I think that would be getting a little on the tight side..but 3 5 inch clowns and 3-3 inch yoyos and a 3 inch zipper loach is getting a little stuffed for my 55... And by the way loaches do grow a lot faster than you think. My biggest clown has grown a little over 2 inches in the last 6 months I've had him. That really isn't that slow, compared to a lot of other fish. My littler clowns have sure put on a lot of bulk in the past month or so I've had them. They are also maybe just a smidget longer, though I can't tell.
