I really think the Yellow/Gold Moshi is the route I want to take.

They would be going into a standard size 150g tank. They would be wild caught so approx 4" to 6" entering the tank. I would not plan on adding to the colony once I have the group.

I could really use some help with opinions on how many (minimum to maximum) I could have in the tank? Also, more important what would be an ideal ratio? Is a 150g too small to house and adult group of Petros?

Please, if you keep Petros, could you discuss your experiences with the groups you have or had, the ratios and how things have worked for you.

Any and all posts are welcome.

Go ahead take the plunge...it's will be worth it
