New 5.5g AGA(((UPDATE PICS!!)))

I just set up a new 5.5aga nano and was wondering what you all thought about 1 small fish in there. I know it is very small, so no flaming me. I havent done it yet just looking for thoughts.

The tank has plenty of established LR from my main and all the sand is from the fuge as well. Plenty of places for thefish to hide.

Well any suggestions? Small Goby ect.... or is this too small?

I will post pics later!!

What about a firefish? They dont get big do they? I think they are really cool looking fish. If they didnt try to jump all the time I would have one

anything that can turn around in the tank is okay.

edit: I know I'm, going to get flamed for this, but I think a clownfish/anemone would be appropriate. think about it, once the fish host he's not going to go to far from it anyways.....

Not really cause a 15 inch naso could turn around...

i know what you mean though...

No flaming, but I have to disagree with that. Neither should be kept in anything that small. It would be nice though....sigh...

Hey rev ... 5.5gal huh? Was this for your parents and end up becoming yours?????

I would think that you could probably do a firefish or a small goby ... I love my little yellow clown goby, he's so small! He fit well in my 12gal. until I notced that there is ISOPODS in there 8O ... now he resides in the 29!

NO CLOWN or ANEMONES!
