Dragonettes can be done in a 29 but that's really pushing it. You will run the risk of starving them since they graze 24/7 on pods unless trained to eat frozen but even then they could revert back to live. I wouldn't get one for anything less then 50 gallons with a fuge and 50lbs min. Of rock.

I wouldn't even try one in a tank less than a 75 unless he's eating prepared food. Pods will run out in no time in a 29
