A little different , lol
This is where the 3 sites rule comes from .
In order to use the web as a reliable source of information find 3 sites that say the same to confirm the others ,
Wikipedia is normally wrong and anyone can change it .

Oh, I'm not saying I was using this as a reliable source. I'm saying I was upset. I contacted them and they replied with, a Volitan can live happily in a 30 gallon for quite a while. Almost threw my phone against a wall.

It also says they're a species for advanced aquarists. Pretty sure they used to be the fish in cycle norm.

This reminds me :
I was looking at a friends post on fb .
She bought a clown trigger for her husbands birthday .
They put it in a 40 gal and thinking she might have to set up her 65
I looked on live aquaria to see the minimum requirements .
Not only is it in a 40 gal but it's in a 40 gal reef .
It's minimum tank suggestion is 300 gal
And is NOT reef safe .
She got very offended cause she is the owner of a LFS that refuses to order or carry anything to do with salt Coral ect .
I guess stocking gold fish is a little different lol

Of course you can put a 10" fish in a 40! Who would think twice???

That's what I thought but because she is a owner of a LFS I know not to go there for advice .
Beautiful fish but I'm a little intimidated by their teeth ,
The size is the next worry
