    It is a very small tank, but it would work for small fish - or fish in dire need of help.

    You would need a heater and small powerhead and some pieces of reefsafe pvc piping for the fish to hide, you would also need an external filter for mechanical filtration.

    As you may use medicines such as copper based, live rock would be useless.

    As long as you give it a good clean then use it.
