hmmm, smells like Marketing to me, lol.
Seriously, the enclosure size would be very, very minimalistic, but maybe not completely out of line, but I think the general concensus among keepers is "the more space the better", however that may be as much an ethical perspective as it is needs and requirement based. I wouldn't say they are really good "beginner pets", in the sense that they are not a good first choice for a pet to put in an aquarium in a childs bedroom as their first pet, but at the same time I have personally raised and can think of many far more, time and attention demanding, and difficult to keep alive animals, so I wouldn't put them in the advanced keepers or extremely challenging group either. Just my penny worth.
