Thanks Otterwoman for posting these links. John piqued my interest about this species and reading the progress pretty much convinced me.

I have some Alpines in a 29 gallon and others in a 20 gallon. Both tank sizes work well. The 29 is deeper and the Alpines do seem to use the extra depth. Alpines are pretty cool!
