180 gallon stocking ideas please.

I just got a 180 gallon tank . It's going to be a long build but I'm still not sure fresh or salt. I would like to get ideas from everyone on stocking if I do go salt. It would be my porcupine puffer that I allready have. I want a dwarf lion for sure and for the other fish I'm thinking blue and maybe a yellow tang either one or both if they would work. I'm also thinking about a trigger but I really don't want anything that could harm the puffer so Im leaning against that . I would like an angel but I don't know if the lion would eat the dwarf or if the tank is big enough for a big angel.anyone have any fish suggestions or fish ideas for me? How many fish would be overstocked in there? Thanks

Having both a FW and now a SW, I find the SW more satisfying.. A lot more expensive and trails, but the fish you can get are amazing!

Yea thats why I'm leaning toward saltwater. From what I can tell puffers are pretty compatible with most fish. And it looks like the big angels need a 220 so I guess that rules them out.

All in the same tank? I thought you couldn't mix them?

You can. It's all in how you add them as far as together or in certain order. All mine get along great
