I don't think 100 gal is big enough. I've seen French angels in the wild and in captivity larger than dinner plates, almost 18" long and tall. Also liveaquaria recommends 250gal min.

Ya but if you google French angelfish tank size there a lot of sites say minimum tank size is 100 gallons. Also in the latest issue of Tropical Fish magazine it says a full size of 11 inches is more common in the aquarium.
