    Well, it depends on the shape of the tank. Comets really belongs in ponds, as they need the large surface area for air exchange & to swim in. They don't need anything too deep.

    So if the 300 gal is shallow (say 1.5' deep or less) it will prob work. But a deep tank is not ideal. I have read somewhere that the recommended surface area is 18 square inches per inch of fish, so for 6 comets of 12" each, you want something like 1200 sq in of tank foot print .... something like a 6 foot x 18 or 20" tank.

    Incidentally, if you talk to a ponder ... they would say 300 gal for 6 comets is small! They like to go for something like 500 gal for 6 mature comets...
