African Elephant Nose and Fluval Edge

Hey everyone,

I think I know the answer to this already...but would it be fruitless and cruel to put an African Elephant Nose Fish in a six gallon planted Fluval Edge with hiding spaces?

I've always wanted an African Elephant Nose but don't have the space for a larger tank. He would be the only fish in the tank.

I'm meticulous about water changes/quality and would feed him an appropriate diet.

Is this doable???

Thank you

I'm sorry, but this fish requires a 50 gallon tank and several of it's own kind, or it will stress out and die.

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

Yeah, Petco says so too. I want an elephant nose too, but I do not have the space it needs, as my 55 gallon is pretty stocked...
