Has anyone kept one of these in a nano tank with no other fish? Most of the online fish dealers say nothing smaller than 30g for one of these, but I am wondering if someone has successfully kept one in a smaller tank, at least temporarily. I ask because I am looking for a unique fish to keep in my 20L*. No other fish will be in this tank, just coral. I have about 10lbs of LR and some frag racks in this tank. I feel like I would be completely irresponsible going this route and just need someone to reinforce that. Thanks! *I do plan to upgrade to a 90-100g tank in about a year.
