29 gallon blank slate...anyone have frogfish?

if you've read my previous post you know I'm moving. I'm transferring my freshies into a larger 55 gallon. This will leave me with a 29 gallon, empty! (a sin in the fish keeping business...no empty tanks!!!!) I'm thinking of converting it to a salt water tank. I'm really interested in frog fish...anyone have experience? Anyone just have advice in general? I'm really up in the air about this tank, but I don't think I want to start another freshwater tank currently....ahhh...maybe for the right fish I guess...I also saw a place that sells "dwarf lionfish" how big do these get? if they stayed small I think that would be an awesome "1 fish" tank....come on! give me ideas! don't leave me hangin'!!!

I wouldn't put a dwarf lionfish in a 29. They need 30-50 gallons. He'd probably survive, but he wouldn't be happy. Go salty though, it's a ton of fun.

Thanks flake, I didn't research the dwarf lion or anything, but I'm always concerned with QOL for my fish...I'm really interested in keeping a frog fish...I don't think they are "reef friendly" though...if anyone has any information about them I'd love to hear it

I didn't either till I checked liveaquaria. That's pretty cool. I don't think i'd chance them eating small fish and just have fish he couldnt eat.
