I am currently cycling a 55 gallon FOWLR
tank, and am curious what is the largest fish that I can put in there comfortably?
I am not interested in Clown Fish, Damsels, etc...
I should have bought a larger aquarium, but as this is my first tank was unaware that a 55 is a baby saltwater tank
I am attracted to lion fish, triggers, puffers, etc...
Are there any fish in that class that would be okay in a 55? I really like the Huma Trigger, Porcupine Puffer, and the various lion fish. I have ran across so much variation as to what is the minimum tank size that my head is spinning. Several website that I have come across have listed a 50 gallon as acceptable for a Volitan Lion, and a 55 as acceptable for a Huma Trigger. Other people say those need much larger tanks, so I am confused.
I am considering putting together a 160 gallon next year if this tank goes well, so what about the possibility of buying the fish I want and moving them when the 160 is done?
Would the 55 be too small for one small 2" Huma Trigger? There are two that size at my LFS
. They also have a Fu Manchu Lion that is awesome, but I have read that they are not for the inexperienced, but they should fit in a 55 correct? They only get around 4" or so.
