Regal Angel

Hey guys,
What do you guys think the minimum tank size for a Regal Angel is? Because there are many varied ideas out there. Some say 100G, some say 75G some even said 55G. I averaged them out and came to 72G. Any thoughts?

10 inches of fish is pretty large for a 75G.. so i would go with a 90 or higher.

The tank size doesnt worry me as much as the expert only care rating they get. I would go with at least a 125 (6 foot tank) for plenty of swimming room. Just my opinion.

I'd have to agree with the 125 especially since liveaquaria says 100. I use their suggestions as a very bare minium. These are tough fish to keep. Depending on collection site, some are hardier than others.
