I think a 55 gal. would be the minimum size I would put one in. They are really beautiful fish, but they get about 7 inches long!

they get much larger then 7 inches, mine started in a 55 gallon and i was going to keep him there, but once he outgrew all the other fish his aggresion twards them got out of hand, he was about 12 inches when i moved him into the 125 with some large oscars and now he knows his place! they are amazingly colorfull though!
