Clown fish in a fluval edge?

Is this possible I would love to do this but can you?

I don't want my fish to suffer. Ive seen it many times on google and YouTube.

Is there really a small enough clown for this tank??

Thanks.

well, my lfs has a pico reef on their front desk with a tiny clown in it, I think it's like a 4 or 6 gal, it's incredibly small.
That said, it can be done, but I don't think the fish would thrive in that environment.

I'm considering putting one in a 12 with a firefish and shrimp, but I personally wouldn't feel comfortable putting a clown in anything less than that.
Just my .02 from the research I've done...

Yeah your right I don't want my fish to be stressed out all the time with a tiny tank.

Thanks for the input guys.

I've had a clown fish in a 6gal Fluval Edge for 6months now. He's done great!!! He was tiny when I bought him and he's prolly grown half his little body size during that time. From my stance...it is possible and will work!!! Good Luck!!!

Yes it is POSSIBLE, but there is no way your clown is happy in a tiny tank like that. I just bought another clown and he is almost full size and honestly, i would never ever put him in a tank under 15 gallons.

I feel bad for clownfish, many people abuse them IMO.
