Sometimes I can’t find him
A couple of anglers taking a swim
Lost this guy when he attempted to eat a Huma Huma that was equal in size.
Are there any Anglers that stay small enough that I could put in a 24 gallon?
A warty frogfish gets up to 5.7inches
I think that’s the smallest adult
Yes. They don't come available too often but Antennatus tuberosus could be kept in a tank that size long-term. They get 3" max as adults.
This is my frogfish Morty. He's a sweetheart. Eats out of my hand. I got lucky, he was already accustomed to eating frozen when I got him. I added a gorgonian recently to his tank and he almost never strays from it now.))
My cutie from about 12 years ago. i miss the little bugger
A warty get about 4" max and grow pretty slow, they aren't as active or aggressive either and a 24g would be fine. Mine lives in a 29g and eats live food, my main filtration is an algae reactor that keeps my no3/po4 negligible. It would likely be best to make it a species tank and keep him there alone. You may consider a leaf scorpionfish or other appropriate sized scorpionfish as a room mate, other than that it's likely not a good idea. Anything small enough for a 24g would likely be on the menu for the angler.
My guy on an unsuccessful hunting trip, lol.
HAHA! What size tank are they in?
210. He's in there with a porcupine puffer, tang, foxface, dwarf eel, and bicolor angel.
This is his perch. He sits up there most of the day. He always starts fishing when he sees me.
Slow and steady doesn't always win the race
Haha! I love these guys! Let's see some more!
