Long Nose Hawk?

Anyone have a long nose hawkish in a nano tank? I have always loved the look of them but know only marginal info about them. I have a pair of clowns, royal gramma and yellow eye comb tooth blenny. The tank is 25 gallons and I am looking for passive fish. According to LiveAquaria it show semi aggressive temperament. Any thoughts and opinions on this are greatly appreciated.

They are really cool fish and I used to keep one in a 55 with no problems. It might be ok in a 25, but, truthfully, I think the limited space would bring out the aggressiveness in the hawkfish... which might be too much for more passive species to deal with.

Nano is to small... These fish like to cruise around... They make use of every square inch of your tank...

Thanks for the info and opinions. I figured as much and am not one to push the envelope and ruin a perfectly fine Eco system!
