Can you keep one clown fish in a 5 gallon tank?

    @bookshelf is too nice. I think a nano salt is ridiculous, especially for a beginner, but even for an expert; unless it's sitting on the counter in a good fish store.

    My opinions.

    Not for long.

    Look into a 20g+. I'm all for properly run nano marine tanks, but a clownfish in a 5 gallon is not proper. You will always end up with a female and even the small ocellaris females can reach 4 inches or maybe more. People will say 3 inches, but I've personally worked with breeder ocellaris which were considerable larger.
