93 Gallon Cube

Have a very small, but possible chance, of getting a 93 gallon cube. Any possibility that, with proper filtration, I could keep a single Volitan permanently? Just a thought.

thats a 2'x 2' tank right? id personally say no considering that lion will def hit 12" as an adult. and be almost just as wide. why not do a fuzzy dwarf? i was absolutely in love with volitans and even had one, but i got a fdl and ill def go with an fdl over a volitan in the future.

I guess I'm looking for the most personable lionfish. Also, will it need a top? I'd prefer not. Still don't know if it's going on sale Friday, but if it is, it's mine. LFS is pretty great with sales

Yeah...get a dwarf. My Volitan just kind sits around. Not too much personality, but is a great looking fish. They do get big ...picture a basketball in your tank and that's the size you are looking at.

Could I find some way to keep 2 fuzzies? If the 93 isn't good for a Volitan, I can find another tank

That would be fine, 2 dwarfs are fine in a big enough tank like what youll be getting

You really need a 125,180+ for a volitan.
