75 predatory tank

Hey all so I'm in the middle of setting up a 75 gallon reef and I have another 75 that I am now planning on making into a predatory tank. What kind of fish could I put in there? I know I should research and I'm going to but I was just wondering if anyone had anything like this that they could tell me about

Eels, lion fish, puffers, triggers, a tang, maroon clowns, anglers, a stone fish, there are a lot.

just be careful with your selection because alot of the "predatory" fish are not reef safe... so if you ever plan on housing corals, alot of these fish will eat them another important aspect is inverts, triggers and lions for the most part will destroy and eat almost any invert.

Ya I'm in the process of building my reef tank this is just an idea for the other 75 gallon tank that I have. So no corals will be added to this one just the reef and ya water changes are no problem. I'm not planning on doing a puffer but I would like to keep some kind of trigger

stay away from the queen,titan,niger, and clown triggers, they all get 12+ inches in length just too big for a 75 unfortunately. oh and if you do get a trigger, keep a very close eye on him when you stick your hand in the tank. both of my triggers dont even hesitate for a second when i stick a finger or hand in there.
