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.

125g~Zoanthid dominated~SPS~LPS~T. crocea~S. haddoni~2xSaddleback Clowns~Hippo, Kole, Achilles Tang~Leopard Wrasse~Flame Angel~Purple Firefish~Gobies~Chromis~3xCleaner Shrimp~2xHarlequin Shrimp~Pistol Shrimp
