Seems a bit too small. I'm guessing it would be around 17-20ltrs. minimum i normally recommend is about 60lts (standard 2ft tank).

i just recently bought an adult male albino and common female, and hoping they will breed soon, both have bred before but not with each other, so got my fingers crossed
