Hey guys I'm setting up a 225 gallon aquarium. It measures 72" L by 30"W by 24" tall. I'm setting it up FOWLR with perhaps some low maintenance shrooms if even. Do you guys think my aquarium would be large enough to house a emperor angel and a clown trigger long term? I would add LR to make caves and territories for them. Would you have suggestions as to tank mates for them if any? Filtration will be a 75 gallon sump with macro and a Nyos 220. Thanks

I would say you need a longer and taller tank for a full grown emperor.

I have to agree with Dave. The emperors gets so big and tend to make large tanks look small. Same for French angels. :0(

That's what my concern was. Maybe in the 720 but they attack clams and softies to my knowledge. Maybe add him young and feed really well?

I would say no long term. I saw an monster emperor at the LFS the other day and I was shocked at how huge this thing was. This thing was massive and it was in one of those huge several thousand gallon cylinder displays like you see at Rainforest Cafe:D
