Hi!..Recently, I entered a pet store and was interested in purcasing a fish. I saw a percula clownfish and have wanted one ever since! I was just wondering, what would be the smallest tank size that i could have to keep and maintain a single clownfish? ??? please help!

Not really sure on that one. You might want to google "percula clownfish", and you will probably have all the information you need about it.

Technically, if that was the only fish you ever had, you could use a 5 gallon tank... getting a filter and heater for it might be a pain in the hind end, but if you could find that equipment you could do it in there. My recommendation is to use at least a 10 gallon tank though, it's just easier to maintain. Also, BEFORE you get anything Saltwater, do your homework. It will make your experience in the SW world much better.

Best of luck!

Yes, 10 gallons will do, or at least between 10 and 15 gallons.

Say hello for me to that lucky percula clownfish!
