It will outgrow anything besides a 6 foot tank.

You could try to take it to a local mom and pop store....sometimes they will let you do trades for store credit....I have had to do that before....

Good idea, I will try doing that, thanks another quick for anyone willing to answer, as far as my clownfish goes, I would like to host it to a small leather anenome, would this be fine to do in my current tank?

I dunno much about those Nems in particular, but most of them require strong lighting and an established tank at least 6 months old.

If space is an issue and not $$$ you could get a 250gl tank that's 5' long and I forget but 24 or 30 deep. I read a scientific journal that stated a 150gl tank is the minimum for a full grown hippo tang based on stress hormones compared to that of one in the wild.

I would wait till your tank is a year old before adding a nem. You dont want parameters moving much as they are very sensitive and can die easily. The hardest thing in this hobby for me to learn and is one of the most important details is patients! I saw a quote that said the only thing that happens fast in this hobby is crashes! Its true ever since i learned patients i have gone from a cesspool to adding SPS a few weeks ago. Just be patient, slow and do lots of research before buying anything
