want to get more agressive

Right now in my 55 gal, I have a dragon goby, flame hawkfish, blue damsel, and yellow tang. I would really like to get a puffer or trigger fish, but I don't want my other fish to be harmed, especially my flame.
My yellow tang should be fine with the more aggressive fish. and i've never heard anyone talk about dragon gobys.

I was just wondering what kinds of puffers or triggers I could possibly get?

Thank you

For puffers, they are not overly aggressive towards others, you just won't be able to keep any inverts in the tank including hermist. Puffers will tear them all apart.

For triggers, the most docile are the Niger triggers. Blue throats are also considered less aggressive. You could try either of these.

Be careful with your stocking though. You could probably only add one or the other of these two types of fish because they are very messy and are tough on your bio-load.
