oh my lfs has three sets already paired up... Just waiting for my clown to finish qt-and my dt to arrive, but then I'll have a pair for sure, unless of course their sold...

the smallest tank size for lobsters that I know of require a 50gal. Flame lobsters are pretty reef safe, but mole lobsters like to eat cuc's. Spiny lobsters are huge, like 40inches, and slippers are like a foot long, both eat anything the get near fish, shrimp clams and snails.

unless im mistaken your 20 is a bit small for even a reef. I can only find one source that details tank size, it my marine invertebrate book by dr shimek. it lists teh reef lobster as 50gal min.

A lobster looks cool and all that .But once you put one in a reef tank you will be lucky to ever see it.I have had two in two different tanks over the years and the only time I ever saw them was with a red lens flashlight when the tank was dark.

but dont add many at first, keep adding them as your tank matures or you notice they aren't keeping up... otherwise you'll just starve them and thats not nice
