I wouldnt put one in anything smaller than a 55g. They are very difficult fish to house. They need a mature tank. It is a difficult fish to feed, it is a shy and deliberate feeder that may need a variety of foods offered to it in order to start feeding. Along with a healthy amount of pods. Also they do tend to pick at inverts and anemones.
