300 for sure

The best tank is a 300! It is 8 feet long, 2 feet wide and 30 inches high. It is very big, but not huge. If you get something smaller, you will always want a bigger tank. Go 300!

Don't live in the ocean!

These fish don't grow that big in our aquariums. All these fish we keep are stunted and will never grow that big. A 180 would be fine. I bet if he keeps that angel for 15 years it will never reach...
