Iam setting up a 125 us gallon tank in about a month. Iam going to buy 8 small dovii for jeff rapps and keep the best looking male. some people say a male dovii needs 150+gallons but a 125 is cheaper and with of the bigger tanks their is alot more height that doesnt help out the fish. so do you guys think it would be a good idea to keep a single male in a 125. the smaller the tank the more bad ass the fish acts

A standard (all glass aquarium)<is the company the pet stop I deal with carry. Very popular in the usa. Are.....

125 gallon, 72x18x22

150 gallon, 72x18x28

180 gallon, 72x24x24

Iam not saying all the tanks are that size but Iam not paying alot more money on the tank and supplies for one big ass fish. When i can get the 125 on sale and 10% off.
