4' tank length is alittle small for this one, 6' tank is recommended, his adult size is around 1'2" to foot and a half.

A 90g is a great size for this fish, Easy care and like most triggers not big on swimming. However You may have to upgrade or remove in the far future I've seen these triggers get 1ft long which IS too big for a 90 gallon. Overall a beautiful Fish with really cool neon blue lines you should be really happy with it. also NOT REEF SAFE! At all.

He has been in the tank for 2 weeks now and is eating well. He still spends a lot of time hiding in the rocks, unless it's feeding time, but I have noticed that when he is out swimming around he keeps his tail closed. Is this normal behavior or should I be concerned. I watched him at the LFS for 2 months and he never had it closed there.

Sorry for not clarifying, his tail is not fanned out it's always in the pinched position. It does not seem to be slowing him down any because he is like a little torpedo all over the tank at feeding time.
