Minimum tank size for a bluehead wrasse?

I've read that blueheads need a lot of swimming room. Would a 20 gal nano be too small for a bluehead?

Thanks.

lol, a 100g would be too small. Along the lines of a 150g-180g minimum due to their swimming behaviors.

I agree with the others. Way too small.

Just an aside - I successfully kept a bluehead in a 30 gal long for about 2 years. Didn't know at the time they needed a lot of room.
