If you have an established larger tank you want to grow a monster into, though, this irks me- when you say you have 10 10g qt tanks when buying a total of 6 rams, an eartheater and school of 10 baby blue longfinned danios- all fish were babies, none over an inch, to handle the separate species for the first 2 weeks until they start to stabilize and I get a feeling for them before I introduce them to my 90g and 150g tanks...
All this 'fish snob' heard was 10g and immediately jumped down my throat about how my eartheater was gonna die stunted because of lack of space... I wasn't even talking to him, I was talking to the employee, who did hear me mention it was a quarantine/ growth situation. She was laughing when I asked him if an inch long eartheater would stand a chance in a 150g with a 7+ inch oscar and 3 sd pacu with a or be grown to 4 inches in a 10g moved up to a semi aggressive 90g and finally perma home in my 150g....
