    Hi Tackle Box
    I want to know if a barra fingerling will live in a 16 litre Dalbarb hexagonal fish tank. Will the fish just keep growing or will the fish stop growing at a length and what would that length be?
    Thank BarraBuster;)

    So would it literally out grow it or would it just start to feel trapped and what size tank do you recommend at the minimum (i'm on a budget)
