New SW Tank

I am thinking about setting up a SW tank. I have had freshwater tanks in the past and would like to try SW now. I would really like a lionfish, but I only have a 30g tank to work with. Would a Fuzzy Dwarf Lion Fish be fine in a tank this size? If so, would I be able to keep any other fish in the tank? Thank you very much for any advice.

Welcome to AA.com! If you have never had SW, I would suggest buy a copy of "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Robert Fenner to begin with. That will give you a good head start.
IMO, a fuzzy dwarf would be OK in a 30 gal. I wouldn't try to keep anything else in there though. Fish loads have to come down a bit when you're dealing with predators because they generate lots of waste. I would plan on having a good wet/dry and a good skimmer (no Seaclone or Prizm).

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

30 gal would be perfect for it by itself and planty of live rock
