You can keep a fu manchu lion and a sarcassum angler but that's it. Also, you can't have a lot of rock though. Maybe use a 7" long 5" pvc pipe.

I guess its a matter of opinion. I have a friend who has that combo together in a 30 and they do great. Live aquaria also says min 30.

Ya some dwarf lions are OK in a 30 but it's pushing it very much. A 55 is perfect for a dwarf lion. But idk about an angler and a dwarf in a 30. I say that's a no no. But it's up to you. I just want your fish to be happy!

Really, like all suggestions and advice. It depends on the person, your tank, your time, your money, your fish. If you want to put a grouper in there, again your tank your rules. I think a lion will be fine as long as hes happy. Your call.
