I don't even really treat min tank sizes as anything more than a friendly recommendation. There's just WAY too many variables to apply a generalization to a fish like that. Not to mention that its kinda hard to truly know if a fish is 100% happy or not. I don't see a tusk being an issue in a 4 footer. . . Even if it does reach the max size of 10".... it'll still have plenty of room to swim. As with 90% of our hobby, guidelines can be slightly tweaked and bent to fit and still have wonderous outcomes

exactly. Which is why when you're doing a stocklist you really need to learn the individual fish and its specifics

I read up every day about the fish I want to keep so hopefully I can have a real good feel for what can go in and what can't.

The tusk is one of those "would like" to have fish but it won't break me either way if I can't get one. Though it would look awesome in there. lol

I know you prob have but I have to ask, have you seen a n adult australian tusk in person?? There's not a pic on the net that does them justice...they are insanely bright and colorful

Well, I still have almost another week for the qt fish so nope, havent progressed at all on this build. :-(

I have been searching Cl for a stand and might have found a 75g setup that I can use. But can't move forward til the 55g is empty. I keep checking out the poor 90g in the garage, it looks so empty and lonesome LOL

Nope, havent seen an australian tusk in person yet, its all indonesian ones
