45 stocking

I have a pretty good idea about what I want..... It might be fo or reef... But what species can I keep in my tank in terms of
Lionfish
Triggerfish
Pufferfish
Boxfish
Cowfish
Eels
I know there are probably several that I can't have any of, but I have gotten contrasting info. and need some help.
Oh and 45 gallon tan.
Thanks a ton!

a small eel, like a snowflake, for a while. some of the smaller puffers like valentini, or leopard. that's it.

How big was your tank? 45 g? I'd honestly say it's a borderline issue on the dwarf. I kept my baby 1 inch fuzzy in a 32 g for a month but only because I was upgrading to a 72 g tank and only because he was an inch long. I found that everything I really wanted I was told my 32 g tank was just too small for.... Your 45 is a little bigger but like I said it's going to be borderline too small for a lot of fish. Your best bet is to do as much research as you can on each fish and ask the experts here on this site just like you're doing. Mr. X there always seems to know what he's talking about
