I don't think there's a dwarf type. The smallest ones reach about six inches in size.

so not really a ten gallon kind of fish? well though the good thing is hogchoakers(not really flounders their actually soles) get to 6inch and i think i heard they start off at 1-2inches and each year grow an inch bigger so thats enough time for me to get it a bigger tank x3 i think a 20-30would be alright right?

It depends on what you want to do with them. They're not very interactive fish and your tank would basically look empty if you had just them. They're also very difficult to keep well fed- they're picky eaters.
