i think you'll be ok in the aggression issue, but not sure that tank is a good size for a moorii... they get pretty big and like opn water... but by then you can get a bigger tank. :) gives you a reason to anyway

I agree with the above. You'd want 90 gallons or bigger down the road.
I have raised c moorii from birth to breeding size.
From birth to 2 inches in very slow and then from 2-4 inches very quick
After 4 inches, slow again. My males are around 6 inches.
Breeding can be around 4 inches. I'd say you have 6 months if the fish all get along. Maybe 9 months.
