    I live in south Florida...plan to keep them on my screened in patio until they are ready for their new digs...is a 20 gallon tank large enough for 6 RIReds? ......or will I need a larger tank for their stay on the porch? Thank you.....

    You can keep day olds in a 20 gallon tank for a while, but they'll grow out of it pretty soon.
