be very careful! many of the fish sold in pet stores grow to many times larger than the size they are sold at. I saw a blue regal tang that was well under 2 inches in a tank at my LFS
I think that it should be a requirement by law for all Fish stores to post the:
Name of the Fish.
Full size of fish when it reaches matureity.
Lifespan of Fish in captivity.
Food Requirements for the fish.
Minimum Space requirements for the fish.
Good and bad tankmates for the particular fish.
I think this would greatly help people out and avoid alot of dead fish and impulse buys.
