    dwarf lionfish

    What is the smallest size tank I can keep a dwarf lionfish in? All the websites I've gone to are giving different answers so I was wondering if anyone has one in a small tank?

    You will need a minimum of 30gallon for a draft lionfish. I have not yet successfully kept any in my tank for more than a month because they simply does not eat.
    Make sure to check if he is eating before you bring him home. A good website that i check for stats on marine/fresh fish is www liveaquaria com
    Hope that help.

    IMO a 90g with no other fish would be the smallest, and a GOOD skimmer as there messy eaters

    Johnny Rock is correct, although the site says 30g minimum I would go abit bigger for the fish to roam around peacefully.
