I mean small one would be ok for a while but why not just wait until you have the bigger tank?

About 4". They are not 100% reef safe but if you get a juvenile they are a lot less likely to pick at coral. They also will like some hiding places within your rock work. The more hiding places you have the more you will actually see then because they feel safe. Super active fish. You won't be disappointed

also are they reef safe? I read a little on them and I am getting impression that they like to destroy corals witch will be a big issue because I have a reef
