I have been thinking about setting up a venustus only tank. I have a four foot 120 was thinking about using to keep them in. Was thinking about getting about 6-10 juveniles and growing them up together. So any advice, thoughts, or recommendations would be great. Thanks

Start with six minimum. You may lose 1 or 2 as they grow out. Four adult Venustus would fill the tank. Growing out together increases odds they will get along.

Thanks for the reply and always responding. What would your estimate be on how long it would take to grow them up to breeding size?
