Not really as they should be kept in groups of 3 or more minimum. They also need well established aquariums and are NOT suitable for a new rank. The tank also needs to be lightly planted.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

I was going to refer you to the profile, but I see it has not beeen revised and the tank size is missing so that would be of little help.

I would suggest nothing less than a 24-inch tank and they might be best in a slightly larger group.

Guess I'll be revising the profile later.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
