Do you have bigger tanks to move them too (I should ask, are you going to build larger tanks - lol) I would think you're going to have a war zone on your hands as all your fish mature...
Ill put them in a bathtub
I'm getting a 350g tank soonish..
But u know they don't grow too fast if u dont overfeed them.. so your 90 gallons is okay for a few years
