Would a Picasso work good with this setup?

I have:

1-niger trigger
2-damsel
1-lion
1-snowflake eel
1-tasmanian devil damsel
10-snails

Any thing I should look out for on the Picasso?

Thanks

Your right. How could I forget my favorite one. Nope that's it. So far the lion has eaten 2 of the 4 damsels, but otherwise they all get along...for now. I want to add something colorfull. I was thinking of a powder blue tang, but I heard they can very ick prone. so I thinking of the picasso. what do ya think?

your kinda on the heavy stocking side of things ! the niger can get big the picasso will stay alittle smaller ! with that mix i wouldnt add any tang to the mix just for that reason "ick"
other than that enjoy you should be ok as long as you dont over feed

The picasso, if you get a lively one, may bother your lion a bit. I have seen triggers tear up a lions fins. The Niger is a bit more docile, my Niger bothers noone, but a picasso can be a bit meaner.

the picaso will eat the snails also.. ate 4 of mine :P , as far as the snowflake eel. I had one with the picaso..they were cool together..had to return snowflake eel when I found out theyre escape artist. I have a powder blue with the picaso ..they dont bother each other now..but when I put in my powder blue about 3 months ago..my picaso went Mike Tyson on him for 2 days. I had to QT picaso for day..at this time my powder blue runs the tank HTH
