lion

Sure...you should consider all your options. If you're anything like me, you'll change your mind 15 times before the fish actually goes in the tank. The limiting factor is the tank size. I think you could keep a dwarf lion in a 29 with no trouble. Most, if not all, of the puffers will eventually need larger accomodations. If you're willing to spend the bucks for the lighting, you could have a nice reef tank with a 29. My 29 has been about everything at one time or another...currently set up for a Figure 8 puffer. You could keep some small fish and lots of inverts in it.

I myself am planing to change my 30L into SW and add a dwarf lion and a Maroon clown. I originally was going to get a pair of 36" VHO's from Hellolights.com ( a 10,000k and actinic). I just read that too much lighting could be harmfull for a lion.

What would be a good lighting setup. It will be FOWLR. Also what would be a good less expensive skimmer.

skip, i would make sure you purchase a very large maroon clown to make sure the lion doesnt swallow him whole.

If the tank is going to fowlr I dont see a problem with a 2 bulb NO setup. One 10000k and one actnic. They are inexpensive and would bring out the color in you fish just fine.

I have had very good luck with Seaclone protien skimmers. They are cheap, but Id say, they have the most bang for the buck. You can check them out at www.petwarehouse.com or www.fishsupply.com. Both places have good prices.

i wouldn't imagine a 4" valentini needing more than 29 gallons, but, as you said, i'll probably change my mind a few million times before this thing gets going. that's why i wouldn't mind getting a little more lighting than i need (in case i start thinking reef). perhaps i could get a ballast that controls individual bulbs.

too much thinking...

puffer

I think you would be OK with that particular puffer in a 29. Most SW puffers get larger than the Valentini which, as you said, gets about 4". Keep us posted on what you decide.
