Don't get me wrong, I like Rum, ahem, I mean Rummies, but yeah, I wouldn't really go with them in a tank with that footprint.
No, it is not a standard size. It is 24inx18inx18in. I thought I would keep 9 rummys, 3 otos, and 2 Apisto. I don't have the tank. It is out of stock but I have everything else.

This is true. Even though I voted for rummies, I have 10 cardinals myself. They look great against the plants and are a nice contrast to my Foersch's Barbs.

BUT, if I had to do it all over again...I would still get the cardinals. But I also would have a 75 instead of a 30 and I'd get the rummies, too.
