3 ft deep, 25" tall. I've read that these max out at 27" and that's if it's a female.

Ohh I see..that won't be too bad. Everything I've read says 3.5 feet. Whether or not males or females are larger I'm not sure. How do you know you have a male? Lol or do I not want to know.

Its based on the claspers lol. The banded bamboos max out at 42 in. The coral cats 27". Females get larger, and usually dont get to that size. Thats why I was considering getting a coral catshark. bluezooaquatics.com has them for sale every once in awhile. And I see people on youtube with corals cats in 150s all the time. Do you think I would be able to get one? I do 30-40g pwcs every week with a rodi unit.

I don't know what to tell you. I can't stop you from getting one. I can only tell you what I know about them and the requrements that come along with them. In the end its your tank, your money, and I'm sure a LFS would sell you one.

I'm getting a coral catshark for the 220g I'm going to get. They've got one at my LFS for 140 which I think isn't bad price. Maybe a couple angels and tangs then a batfish and finally a dwarf lion.

A 180g would be a better choice because its 24" wide and a 150 is 18" wide. You could do one until it's about 18" long

Do you know how long that would take? If I were to get a male, do you think he would get much bigger than 18"?

It'd be .5" per month so if you bought one at 9" it would take a year and 1/2.
