How much space?
I have a question that I have had problems with for a little while now. I have been looking at possible arrangements to make larger community tanks and despite my best look around the threads on this forum I am having trouble finding the numbers I need, so I will list the questions here=
What is the tank space requirement for the most common betta compatible fish/shrimp snails? I feel it is far easier to choose the tank mates, then calculate the space required so I can buy a tank of the right size rather than scramble about buying a tank, then constantly trying to find someone that will 'fit'.
For instance- how much space does a snail need of his own?
Tetras (per tetra, I know they must come in schools by default or if you prefer the space 5 tetras would need)?
etc etc etc.
I would feel better having all the space numbers written down so I can design a tank from the ground up and cater to everyone's needs instead of adjust as I go.
