L333 breeding pair set up

Hey guys,
I was wondering if a 60cmx30cmx35cm tank is big enough as a potential breeding tank for an L333 pair??
Cheers

A little bigger would be a lot better. That is only about a 16 gallon tank and a pair of L333's would be a little cramped in there..... set up correctly and doing water changes often would work but you would be better off getting a bigger tank if you ask me!

its do-able - just might need to do small daily water changes to prevent nitrate creepage..... still need some decent filtration attached to the tank though

Cheers for the reply guys. I've decided to just get a three foot tank instead (3ft x 1 x 1.5). How many Adults would I be able to fit in a tank that large?

i use to breed mine in a standard 2ft tank with an internal filter, was getting good batchs every couple of months.

tank was under my community tank in total darkness most of the time, and was doing water changes with r.o water.

im a beginner to breeding and that seemed to work for me...
