Tankmates for Picasso Trigger

Any ideas for good tankmates for a picasso in a 60 gal?

Lots of things will work as long as they are bigger or the same size. I had two puffers, a pacific blue tang, a cowfish and a lion with mine.

After I got my liverock I had to take him back to the store, he was very destructive to it and I couldnt have any inverts at all with him in the tank. It was a hard decision to make since I had him 3 years.

as for the cowfish, are they easy to keep, and is it true that if you scare it, it will produce a venom that will kill fish in the tank? because they look like a box look so cool

I kept a Volitan Lionfish and Panther Grouper with a Picasso Trigger. They all got along fine.

Now doesn't a niger trigger get too large for a 60 gal? And I know the answer is probably no on this, but would an undulated trigger be too aggressive?

Porcy would work fine, I had a huma and a porcy together for a couple of years, no problems.
