They grow to the tank size. The more space they have, the faster they grow.
Depending how long the fish may already need a larger tank. But in saying that the 90g is fine for a 10in. But I would not wait to after 15in IMO.

But as for your point, you say they only grow so large, then keep going. Well it is true. And they don't stop. But their is a point when all fish will grow to the tank dimensions and stop, because they can't. Being stunted. That was what I was talking about.
You miss quoted me 100%They grow to the tank size. The more space they have, the faster they grow.They grow to the tank size.
I am among a small belt of Arrow fish keepers in my area. Most of them won't get a tank past 6ft and 3ft 3ft. And all of the fish don't grow past 3.1-3.8ft long.
But on the whole fish are forced by us to grow to the size of a tank. Yet some will grow more, you are saying it as 100% correct with out one chance that the fish or any fish won't keep growing or stay small. How can you say that when fish of all types change our perceptions all the time?
What I was saying is what I wrote. Just logical follow on of the sentences, just using periods to answer the question, and give better force to what I said with clarity. You miss quoted. And have hence made a mess of what was stated. For me 4 year exp on my own fish keeping and from people I have know fish keeping for longer than I have lived, is how I have based my thoughts and most of my posts ever posted on AC.
So I repeat.They grow to the tank size. The more space they have, the faster they grow.That is not true either.The more you feed them,the faster they grow.It has nothing to do with the size of tank they are in.
And IFed the same. FED THE SAME. FED THE SAME.
Man I must have dreamt all of that. Must go and check my tank out, and see that he is not still small.
My RTS has done the same, he is now just of 5 inches in the 1 year I have kept it. And he started at 2in. Wow that must never ever have happened.
Quiet a few of my Kulies which I have kept in my 100g are now 8in long and have been in the tank for 1 year now, and these I purchased at 4in.
Ohh and my Sev which is 10in long was spawned and grown in a 150g tank, 6ft long. And from what the owner said it took him 1 year to get half of his size, and the another year to finish that size. This fish had been kept from a young fish to old fish. Then the man got rid of him and a few others of his severum group, and a chap had them for 6 years. Now I have had him for 1 years now. And he is doing great. That fish two must have had some odd problem about not at all growing as large and as fast as they are able to do in the right conditions.
Oh and one more my BN which is a BN is now nearly 7 inch long. And he I have spawned my own and is one year old and been in a 100g all its life, till now and he is in a 75g cube.
Must get out o chair and hit head on wall to make sure I am alive and not mental.
Now as to the factThe more you feed them,the faster they grow.It has nothing to do with the size of tank they are in.
But it has everything to do to the size of the tank and the food.
All mine get fed a great diet, and they only grow to the size of the tank, and then grow more if I take them out before they get stunted. I never keep a fish that can get stunted in any of my tanks.
So no you are wrong on one point. Fish grow faster if they have better space. But food is needed. And logically included. Duhhhhhhh

You are wrong in your first post,and in this post MAC. It would be nice if you could admit it,then let it go. But as you have shown in the second post,I am sure you will not.
Go on with trying to tell people how to keep fish,even though what you say is usually wrong.
I'm done with this.

Mercy, That's one scary looking fish!It is a beautiful fish but I'm a big chicken and I would be afraid he would bite my hand off.//
