Full grown angel fish

How big of an aquarium should I have for a full grown angel fish? I have had him for about 3 years and he's about 5-6 inches from nose to tail and about 3-4 inches from the top to the bottom of his body. Then of course, the fancy fins they have on top and bottom. Thank you!

Hi,  JennieTaylorWelcome to the Petco Community and thank you for your question. According to our Angels care sheet, they need a minimum aquarium of 29-gallons. We hope this helps. Best wishes!

Re: Full grown angel fish

You'd be able to comfortably house one in a 29 gallon tank. Personally I like the 40 gallon tank for its dimensions, its the tank I recommend for someone that wants to have a main display tank without it being to large.and I'm sure your angel would love a 40 Smiley Happy

But yes, at bare minimum the 29 gallon would be fine.
