    I how many gallons is a 20in by 10in by 12in tank?

    You see I have a tank that has Venus Fly Traps and a few other species of carnivorous plants in it and I want to get a feel for how much bigger a 30 gallon tank would be.

    Any help would be extremly appreciated!

    the pic was a little small, and i could tell much from the other, but im a big fan of fly traps..... not many people know they only come from one place.... down around towards where Sideways lives....

    yeah, i think the number is like 10 or more times of being triggered without food and it starts messing up the plant....

    Depends..
    I dont feed mine because they get enough food from the food and water and also because if I give them a fly or ant it usually it kills the trap. My traps are big and red because of being so old. About an 1in per trap. If yall want another pic I will try to get 1.
