Not to hijack, but how big do Emperors usually grow to be?

Thank you all, this has been extremely helpful. I'm so glad to have somewhere to go to have a more experienced opinion.
I believe all keep the 45 gallon an all- or mostly-barb tank, maybe adding some loaches once I find one I can't live without. With the 90, I think I'll just stick with a main plan of hatchets, neons, and corys. I'll have to see how it goes from there.
Although, I'm probably just counting my chickens before they hatch. I haven't even got a 90 gallon tank yet!

So, I settled for an 80 gallon.. I believe it was a cichlid tank at one point (there are rocks in the back), but it will do fine. It's complete with some lifegard module filters and a UV light. All it needs is a new pump - and probably some new lights - and it'll be ready for meddling with.
I decided to switch my stocking around from what I originally had planned. I'm researching as hard as I can on compatibilities; I decided I don't want to take risks. It's a bit oddly shaped (as tall as it is wide) and may be extremely hard to get nippy fish out. Not to mention that it's just a bad idea in the first place to keep wrong combinations of fish...
Nonetheless, I am extremely excited! I can't wait to stock it.
