need some Firefish info

Hey guys,
Im thinking about buying a firefish, but am just wondering what kind of tank it prefers to be in?

I have a 33 gallon tank, with 2 mated clown fish and a flame scallop.

I have a powerhead throwing some current accross the tank, so im just wondering if the firefish would fit?
do they like current or do they prefer a calmer tank?
Thanks in advance!

They'll hang out near the bottom anyway and I don't believe the current you describe will be a problem. They are jumpers though. Some use eggcrate over their tanks since glass tops can create oxygen or heat issues.

You tank is a good fit for one. I lost two to carpet surfing, so please get some eggcrate to cover your tank.
