i have 3 green terrors in a 55gal one male about 3 to 3 1/2 inches a female 2 1/2 inches and another female 2 inches would they have enough room in there until say next march when i get a bigger tank or will they need a bigger tank i was thinking of maybe they need like a 75 gallon but when i get a bigger one i will prolly get a 135gal or something around that so what do yall think?

..the bigger the better...IMO...lol

...you maybe OK til March...maybe not...depends on the temper of the individual fish ....as they grow, you'll see their true demeanor...

A breeding pair only need 55g. I think if they do pair up 75g will not be enough they would just kill the left over female. Maybe you should get rid of one? But yeah 75g would be enough for 3 if you had all females!

My green terrors are a mateing pair. Now they have never got past the fertilzing stage due to being uncomfortable with the oscar in the tank. They have laid eggs 3 times and within a few hours the oscar is on there case so the eggs are eaten. I would just remove one female if you are intending to mate them.
