Secondary fuzzy lion fish?

I have a smaller 20 gallon aquarium which contains a fuzzy dwarf lionfish, and I was wondering the possibility of bring a second fuzzy into the system. The aquarium had many hiding spots and great filtration for their waste. What's your guys opinion on my situation?

I would say no. For Now he should be ok in a 20 if he is very small but I would upgrade him to a 50+ they tend to be messy eaters. I would go by a rule of thumb.... Lionfish need 50 gal + minimum no mater what type. That's just my opinion

Agreed you need to get him out of there very soon. People who put them in a 30 gallon are pushing it let alone a 20. Ya at least get him into a 55. You are just shortening his lifespan in a tank that small. Just want you to be able to enjoy him for a long time!
