planning my second tank!!

Ok so im starting to plan my second tank! Im dreaming of a lionfish (dwarf) snowflake combo..pending on if I go with my spare 20g or if I upgrade it. If I dont im gonna do one or the other..anything I should know other than the eel will probly outgrow thr tank in a year( which will give me an excuse for a bigger tank)? Would a 20g long be more suited? Could a dwarf lionfish live in the 20l or is it not tall enough?

Neither one of us has a tank big enough to even consider a snowflake eel; but I am kind of in the same predicament with the dwarf Lion. I have a 55g for a second tank. I want to either do an Angelfish tank or save up and do dwarf lion tank! You def. Need atleast a 55g tank to even think about lion fish (even dwarfs). And snowflake eels grow huge quick!

But if you upgrade to a 75g you could def. Have both comfortably. Maybe even a med. Size lion. I love Eels I have a peacock eel in my Tropical tank now. he is one of my favs.

I'd go with liveaquaria. They are the right most of the time. I say 55 for both as well.
