If people really meant that they wouldn't have fish in their living room. I don't believe that is a natural environment for fish. Aquariums are not natural environments for turtles or lizards, either, nor are cages for birds.

For the record, I have always taken very good care of pets, whether fish, cats, birds, dogs or horses. As for filtration, I typically have twice as much as is "needed" at a minimum.

The 40L stood for 40 Long, not liters.
Good to hear it wasn't liters!

Fish tanks are for sure not natural, like as in, if they were in the wild. My comment was "in space where they can behave similarly to their natural habitat." So no argument on that point. But more room, decor, fish companions, group, size, water parameters, etc.

Enough on that as we digress from the OP's topic.


New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
