Actually, I think the bursa only gets to be around nine inches in length.

perhaps I am wrong. aha it is 9.8 inches long at adult size, has been reported to be up to a foot (12 inches) in the wild (somewhere in Hawaii.)

Ive keeped Triggers in the past in a small tank and they hardly grew ,maybe an Inch over 3 years in a 3x1x1 ft tank ,love feeding them as I had them to the point they had there head out of water to grab the food out of my fingers..I havnt had the chance to find any for this tank yet but thats the fun of collecting you just dont know what you will find next..

I'm not sure if this has been established or not, but there are two species commonly referred to as "bursa."

One, the true bursa - Sufflamen bursa - and the other species - Rhinecanthus verrucosus. Neither are actually suited for temperate environments.

i think Rhinecanthus verrucosus is the best option... and is the one i like most... a cousin has one and needs to rehome, so could be nice to get one!

i will try to ask on TPF to learn more about this fish...
I´ve been thinking about not dissemble (totally) the 40G and wait to get the 90G to start working...

That's probably a good idea. Not taking down the tank immediately will probably be less stressful for everyone.
