Well considering your tank couldnt keep a tang, or lion, who cares? Your totally missing all the cheaper fish, like gobies, dartfish, firefish, and cardinals

This is the best part. Vegetables aren't just people food. Those little pest coming up to the garden...

U can definitely keep a dwarf lion in a 55. They require 30 gal. And my lfs has a couple gobies. No firefish and cardinals are like $25 and id need to get a pair...

They require 50-60 at the very very least.

Why would you need a pair?

You dont need a pair of firefish, or a pair of cardinals. One of each is perfectly fine. They are peaceful fish for the most part

A dwarf lion gets about the size of a softball. I would feel strange with a fish that size in such a small tank.

Yeah I would get a nice cube tank for a lion fish and just for him I've always liked the way they looked.
