    Harley:

    I started with one tiger tail, and now I have two. Do a search on this board, as there was a thread about it back in the spring.

    I am slightly concerned about them now, since my two are now as big as my oringinal one. Everything I've read says that you shouldn't keep more than one in a 55 gallon, since the second may starve (and we have all heard the horror stories of what can happen if a cucumber dies in your tank). So, it may be time to think about trading one way.

    Harley: if you have seven in a 125, you may also want to think about trading a couple as well.

    Just as a side note, I had a large black cucumber die in my tank and noticed absolutely no ill effects. I took him out right away though ( I think- it's kinda hard to tell with a cucmber!)
