Help With New Tank

I can not decide what kind of fish I want to do in my new tank. It is about 30 gallons and I plan on doing a single-fish tank. Should I do an Angler Fish, Leaf Fish, Lionfish, or a Puffer fish? Which one is the most fun to watch?

You could keep several dps in that tank
They are adorable and fun to watch
The others sort of hang around and don't move much
Plus I think the leaf fish need groups and way more space
Same with the lion but only one

So are you ditching the 12g hex plan?

Yes. I have decided on this newer tank which is about 25-30g. Now I am pretty new to the aquarium thing, all I have is a 30g reef and now this new one that I am deciding on. What does dps mean?

If I went with the puffers, what kind would you suggest, and could I keep a snowflake moray or a longnose hawk with it?

I don't know much about saltwater but I think figure eights could go in full salt and they are adorable
I doubt you could keep any other fish besides maybe a few more puffers of the same species

Figure Eights are freshwater, and saltwater puffs can't be kept together.

No pufferfish besides GSP or lionfish could fit in a 30g. Not even a dwarf lionfish.
