Well with the Fu Manchu lionfish it only obtains a total lenght of 4'' so im assuming it wouldnt be able to fit alot of the fish in its mouth when they are grown. But whatever. I just need advice to get into the door. I know all about the products and the equiptment its just the fish I need to know about. I have like 10 books and I have read the first 3 beginer ones, so I am doing my research.

A 4" lion will still be able to eat a clown. Especially the male if you had a pair. Secondly, you will not be able to have any shrimp at all. I personally love the shrimp, they add an enjoyable element to the home aquarium, not to mention the unique personalities shrimp such as the skunk cleaners, cbs, and blood shrimp have. Which is probably why I have 5 shrimp and 4 different species in a 37 8O

Trust me, lions have bigger mouths than you think. Also, fu manchu lions aren't really reccommended because they are not very hardy and it can be a hassle to try and get them to eat.
