Steve,
With good water changes and good filtration you can significantly increase the quantity of fish you can keep in an aquarium.

I am helping some newbies setup a Hap tank, and everywhere they go they are told their tank is too small.

I am so tired of this nonsense. After 30 years owning, breeding, and enjoying Aficans from every lake, the one thing I learned is aquarium size is not terribly relevant.

What is relevant is:

1) The amount of diffused oxygen in the water
2) The relative concentration of waste byproducts

I am not speaking of breeding Fronts, but mostly to those who keep Mbunas or Haps.

A 32 gallon bio-cube can support 25 Mbunas, until they outgrow it, which due to the slow decline in available oxygen can take years.

A 20 Show can do 15, if large scale filtration and water movement in place (large bio wheel plus large canister for example).

I hope people here do not discourage someone who only has room for a 20 gallon tank!
