Any saltwater fish that you think are 100% not to be kept by home aquarium setups?

  • Are there any marine fish (excluding any species that are way too big or species that are endangered or rare in nature as-is) that should NOT be kept by the average home aquarium hobby owner, and why?

  • I believe just like in freshwater, it really is those species that tend to just grow extremely large or tend to have very specific care requirements (whether that is a dietary requirement for example). I don't have an exact list, since it tends to vary more with saltwater tanks due to their huge difference in size (and many homes have custom acrylic aquariums, which can throw a curveball into the mix).

    I'm sure others can chime in with a good list of species.
