Getting a 150g predator tank, but want to convert to reef...

Hi All,

Kinda new to the forum so forgive my ignorance.

I'm looking at buying a 150 gallon tank. It currently has the following fish:
*White Eye Eel
*Voliatan Lion Fish
*Maroon Clown Fis
*Lunare Wrasse
*Pink Tail Trigger

Unfortunatley the wrasse is SO agressive that it recently bit off an eye of on the Voliatan, so he looked very lathargic (sp) when I went to check out the tank.

I'm thinking of getting this tank as its a VERY good setup for a reasonable price (700ish for everything), and then gradually switching the agressive fish over to a 60-90g predator tank.

Thoughts on this?

The fish would probably be too large for a 60-90g tank. The Maroon clowns would be ok and maybe the lion. The others I would say find a local reef club and sell them.

Great price on the system too!! That tank alone would cost more then that probably.
