Would a midas stunt in a 55 gal w/ every 2-5 days water changes? will it grow to its full potential?

I would do weekly changes Very Happy It wouldnt stunt it unless you dont have filtration, dont do WC's or is overstocked.



A 55 will be good if you are doing what you say you will do for the next years Laughing

What kind of filter?

Optimum would be 75, but you can do it with 55 Very Happy

why kind of filter should i go with? i was plannin on buyin the kit from walmart then get emperor 400 and maybe a canister. so three filters should be good?. can u give me a estimated price on a emperor 400 and a good canister? Do midas prefer a lot of gravel? plants? Big rocks?

Gravel, no plants maybe a big rock but not sharp.


I would buy a Rena Filstar XP3 canister filter. Its less than $100
