Mine is 180ltrs

Depends on how many fry you have too. But i think that the bigger the better as the fry have more room to grow in. I would suggest that, like most fish, they will grow faster and larger in a bigger tank.

Got to agree the bigger the better and the fry do seem to grow quicker in a larger tank.
