Scorpion leaf fish

I'm currently cycling a 30 gallon cube and am trying to plan the stock. I really like the scorpion leaf fish. Can it be housed with different species? If so, what would you recommend?

Here are a couple pics. Sorry about quality, I took them with my phone.

I haven't got the ph or lights yet. I think I'm going to do a MP10 and a Kessil a150

I looked into the comparability chart on live aquaria, it looks like the only fish I could find that is compatible and ok in a 30 gallon would be an angler or another scorpion. There are some others once you get to the 50 gallon size tank like eels and lion fish. All of these have a big bio load so I'm not sure how many you could do in smaller tanks.

I think it would be cool to do a reef with a leaf and an angler.

Thanks for your help! An angler and scorpion fish tank sounds awesome. May do that.

I think I would have to agree with that. All I would say is watch the water quality, especially if you do coral, you may have a pretty good bio load. But it will definitely be cool. I don't have any experience with either of Those fish but good filtration and water changes should be able to keep up with those two fish.
