6" is the upper limit to a fishes size in a 55g tank. Any larger than that and the tank is too small

The biggest ill let the thing get is prolly 8-9" ok you guys will say "that's cruel to the fish. It needs to be in a bigger tank now" but it's my fish and I plan on getting more money from it then what I payed I bought it 4 1/4 inches for 25 dollars I wanna get at least a 5 dollar profit I personally think I got ripped off on the fish

Thats nothing.I once got a lemon peel angel for my 37g reef tank... It ate all my brain corals, and it was a 40$ fish but i gave it to the fish store for 10$. But thats nothing compared to what i saw a couple days ago. While i was at the lfs two people came in with all there live rock (200lbs) and all there fish,coral, and equipment from there 180g reef tank turns out it cracked but they managed to save some of it. They said they paid 7000+$ but they only got 250$. See some times your gonna loose some money on what you buy in this hobby. Also happend with a 35$ mandarin goby i got, thought i could keep him in my tank but it turns out they are almost impossible to sustain. So i gave him to the lfs for 7$
