Hello everyone. I recently received a 110 gallon aquarium as a gift and I am currently cycling it. The question I have that brought me here is what exactly is the best housing space for these guys? I know I need to get at least four of them but, all of the information I've read about them has been very confusing because one place will tell me they will live fine in a 55 gallon and the next place will say they absolutely need a 200+ gallon aquarium
I'm hoping to get some first hand information from someone who has kept them happy and healthy for awhile. I have my eye on getting four little Mono Sebaes at my LFS when my tank finishes cycling if my tank is good for them. My new tank specs are 110g aquarium (49x19x31) PH is 8.0 Temp is kept steady at 82 degrees and salinity for now is 1.003 and will slowly raise over the life of these guys until full SW.
Thank you in advance for any information.
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

Your initial plans sound fine, but the fish are capable of getting around 10 inches in total length. A 110 gal isn't a bad size and should work. I have not experienced or even seen full grown Monos in a public aquarium that achieved that 10 inch length. The largest I have experienced were about 8 inches and they were full grown and kept in full marine environment. Bottom line, your 110 should be fine.
