Pearlscales like any other goldfish can grow to possibly 12 inches.  It doesn't swim well so therefore would not be a good friend to your fair fish who has a streamlined body and only has room for itself in it's little bowl. Smiley

Most of them grow to be like huge oranges ;> But it varies pretty much from fish to fish, like with most varieties, so be prepared for 8-12 inches Cheesy

mine only got to 6 inchs it depends if your tank is big enough or if it is to small. an overcrowded tank or to small of a tank will keep you fish smaller. and there will be a better chance of him getting swim bladder problems u dont want that

Hi,
A Lemon tetra will grow to about 2 inches max. So if you go by the 1 inch per gallon rule then you could keep 1 lemon tetra in a 2 gallon tank.  However, lemon tetras are freshwater, tropical fish.  They would need a heater and filter in their home.  It likes to live in water of a temperature of 73-81 degrees F (23-27C).  They like soft, acidic water, ph around 6.0.   Smiley

Lemon tetras are schooling fish btw, so DON'T keep only one of them in a 2 gallon. This would stress the poor thing to the max Sad
So if you want to keep tetras, buy yourself a bunch of 7 or more and they'll feel more secure in the tank Smiley Make sure that they have lots of plants to hide in when necessary!
