    is it a full hex or just a hex front tank? IE are there 6 equal sides or does it more resemble a regular tank with the front corners angled. It will make a difference.

        Big difference in stocking, You can fit quite the collection in there. Id say at least a good 20 or more males, the more fish the less one will get picked on. As far as trio's I would think around the same number would be good thou if you can up the females even more you will have reproduction faster for a food source lol.

        The numbers are probably a bit conservative as I might even try to push it up to near 40 fish myself but that would be with careful monitoring.

          I'd say 2 gallons each if doing all male (so, like, 20 or so), and if doing a mixed group, give them 3-4 gallons each, just incase any fry get missed and your numbers slowly creep upwards

          If you aren't doing any other fish, you can do a bit more than that.

              I'd go with tenish.

              Why is the tank full!? The crabs need dry land to get out on.

                I told you Rogue about the dryzonesin the jars.... the 2 crabs spend more time in there with the tank full the when the tank barely had water.... odd crabs imho

                  10 guppies sounds like a good number. Gives you room to let them breed.
