Warty frogfish

I have read in the 101 best nano reef species book that you could keep a warty frogfish in an 8 gallon and I was wondering if that was true, and if so are there any other fish that I could put in the tank with it that it wouldn't eat and the tank won't get overstocked.

live aquaria says minimum twenty. in a tank that size one fish should be the max anyways, maybe two if your lucky. definitely not the frogfish though.

Tanks that small are really limited in what fish can go in them. There wouldn't be a single nano fish I would put into any tank with a frogfish.
Would I put one in a tank that small anyway? No, I'd like to have it in something in the 20-30 gallon range.

The ammonia level would be a problem with this fish in such a small tank.
