Re: how many gallons

Matt got your gallons right.
That's a HUGE tank!

Re: how many gallons

Is the tank going to be predator or reef?

Re: how many gallons

Look into a minautus grouper !A beautiful fish that can hold its own with most anyone.Mine is with 2 lions and a morray,and killed my tusk just because of similiar shape I think?I really limit my feedings to these beast or they may end up bigger than the tank.The Mini is way more beautiful then I though any predator could be!
