If you have a juvenile, you should be ok in a 40 gallon for about 6 months. But sometime in the very near future you will need at least a 150 gallon aquarium. These fish grow large and will have a very shortened life in a 40 gallon tank. This is especially true of Angelfish, which tend to develop eye infections when not provided with the proper environment.

I do not mean to be rude but, this is just another example of someone buying fish solely on how "pretty" it is. Please people, research BEFORE buying!

i was in a fish store tonight. they had about 5 or 6 moorish idols.


its a shame to think in 5 months everyone will be dead.

what im getting at is that the fish store is at blame as well. i feel they should inquire about peoples setups, offer correct info, not keep a stock of species that require extreme special needs (they can be special ordered) and so forth. this will prob. make them loose sales but keep loyal customers that know its a good store.
this isnt always the case. it seems like its all about a sale. when some one comes in and says, i like that fish, they dont have a problem bagging it up.

Oh, Moorish Idols....that is such a horrible shame, luckily I have not encountered those in any stores I have been too, but there is a first time for everything I guess.
I remember a time I was at a fish store just looking around, and a customer was having a good amount of saltwater fish being bagged up to buy them. When the employee inquired about his saltwater tank, the customer replied "What? Saltwater? I need a Saltwater tank?". I get sick in my stomach when I think about that.

I saw quite a few Moorish Idols while snorkeling over in Kauai. They are an amazingly beautiful fish and I can understand why someone would want to keep one but shouldn't!!
I blame the industry and not the buyer. I wish they would ban keeping Idols (along with quite a few others) in captivity, thereby making it illegal to own them. If I ruled the world.....

The store employee explained setting up a saltwater tank to the idiot customer, and after a few minutes he decided against it. Another thing that disgusts me is that the store would have sold him the fish anyway if he had to set up a saltwater tank that day. Ugh.

How is the Koran doing? Also, with all due respect, the 40 gallon tank, while probably fine for a juvenile Koran Angelfish, will certainly be too small for the fish as it grows. I haven't kept a large angelfish yet (trying to find a juvenile Queen but everyone seems to be unable to get them right now), but I have kept dwarf angelfish and don't think I would want to keep one larger than maybe three-four inches long-term in a 40, depending on the tank dimensions. Still, congrats on the Koran, it's a lovely fish!
