Ideas for a "show fish"

I love the zebra lion but have been told that it would eat my six line and my scooter, I also have a reef so I don't want it to be blinded by my leds as I heard it can happen. Ideas?? It's for a 120g.

Do you have crabs or shrimp? If not a harlequin tusk would work. Gorgeous fish.

You can always do one of the nicer tangs....purple, chevron, sohal.

I'd love to have an aggressive tank but already have peaceful fish so I don't think I'll be able to do a trigger. Sweet looking fish though thank you

Tusks don't touch corals, just shrimp/snails. Depending on your specimen they may not even go after the inverts.

Yes pretty hardy carnivore. Less susceptible to ich than tangs etc. Make sure you don't get doped into getting an Indonesian tusk @ an Australian tusk price
