    It can get approximately 3 inches as an adult so I wouldn't recommend anything smaller than 30 gallons.

    If he is the only one, a 5-10 gallon would be ok. I had one in a 5 and was doing great. I had to breakdown my tank thoug, as I found out it was leaking.

    If he is by himself he will be fine, well in my personal opinion.

    agree that a 10g would be fine for a single damsel fish

    I wouldn't do anything smaller than a 10 on damsels or any fish at that ratio!!!
