predator tank

okay I think I know what I would like to do with my 125gal. I have a 75 non aggressive tank that I am eventually going to add reefs into. So I figure on the 125 I want to do something different, I am leaning towards the predators. Something like triggers, lionfish, etc. What ideas do you have?

Triggers, Lions, smaller groupers, puffers, eels.....not all of course and some are not compatable, but there are a few ideas to get your research started..

definately look into triggers...i like the more "peaceful" ones like the niger and the pinktail...they have a better reputation for gettign along and not lashing out and killing the tank lol...also tangs are great....i personally recommend the Foxface rabbitfish huge algae eater...gets along with everything and is poisonous so thats cool...i hand feed mine i would never be afraid of it they have great personalities...i personally dont liek wrasses because they will eat your whole cleaner crew....eels are great you will get attached to it...

do you think it would be okay to add 2 snowflake eels in a 125 gal? And what have you heard or experienced with the clown triggers, could I possibly put one of them with a naso tang? I still have not yet added any live stock to my tank. I really dont want to regret anything later. Also will the eels eat hermit crabs,starfish, or any thing of the sort. And if they will eat them what would you recommend for a clean up crew?

clown triggers are known to have EVIL temperaments. 2 snowflake eels would be ok...but you won't see much of them as they tend to hide most of the time.

have you heard if the humu triggers are EVIL as well? I like the humus and clowns I just need to know which one would be the best for my tank.

picasso triggers are also on the nasty side. A more peaceful choice would be a niger trigger.

A very peaceful choice that can co-habitate with predators is also a medium or large Foxface Lo... They typically leave others alone, they are great algae grazers and their venomous spines generally teach the others to leave them alone.

Here's some info you may find interesting...
