But due to the fact that i couldnt keep houdini out of my sump and i had no covering for my pump he got caught in the impeller and died.

So at this point i am over the semi aggressive setup now since the trigger and eel were the primary focus for my tank; Im going to return the trigger and go with something more peaceful in its place.

Ill give the snowflake another shot in a year or two when I upgrade my tank. Ill probably set up a lionfish tank that he would go good in.
Sorry to hear this, that totally sucks

I second this! Save up for some females. I remember back when I had a make Mccoskers I was looking for females and had a very hard time finding them. I traded the fish though because my tank was borderline for a flasher.

I was fortunate to pick up a Gold Assessor. Might be tough to get ahold of but an awesome fish imo.

A purple tilefish might be cool too.. Something a little bigger that could stand out with its color.

I was thinking about a black cap basslet for a nice purple colored fish, but those are great too. Thanks for the suggestion
