majestic angel??

My lfs has a majestic angle about 2.5-3 in in size. They have had it for about 3 weeks and is eating great with beautifull colors. I currently have a 90 g setup but I am in the process of gathering the equip for a 150 or a 180 building stand and dump now. Is my 90 large enough to house this fish for about 9 months or so??

If the water quality is up to snuff the 90 should work as a temporary home.

All the numbers are good with the exception of phospates but I am waiting for my rodi to arrive to fix that. How fast of a grower is the majestic?

All these fish tend to grow based on food availability, their comfort level and the tank size. I can't say how fast he will or will not grow. Too many variables.

As this is an expensive fish (at least that is my guess) I would be dead certain my water parameters are stable and as good as you can get them. Killing something this beautiful would be a sin.

They tend to grow fairly slowly. Maybe an inch in 6 monthsish? It's hard to be certain since factors change tank by tank.

He should be okay. I would just keep an eye on him to make sure he's still healthy and not looking stressed in any way.

My ntrates and NH are both zero all the phosphate is doing is making my clean algae more then I would like to. My current fish are all very healthy. And yes it is an expensive fish that's y I want to make sure he will be fine in a 90 for a short time. This fish is notoriously difficult to get to eat and the fact that this store has had it for a while and I have seen it eat numerous times makes me want to jump on the opportunity.

Thank you, if this is the case even if he grew 2 in over the next 9 months I think he should be fine.

If he grows that fast, you are the man.
