Yes Scott the nassirus snails did OK. He would go up to them and kind of sniff them but he would not mess with them. I would say they would be good for his tank but crabs and shrimps and lobster will not make it. I would also forget the damsels as your tank will be too heavily stocked.

Ditch the damsels and the coral beauty is iffy. Tube anemones could very well sting the lionfish, which spends much of its time perching.

Thanks. So why would the beauty be iffy? The nems? Would it nip? Is that the concern? And would the lion get used to it or like start swimming in theopen or something like that?
Thanks for all the help everyone!

The coral beauty may nip at corals. The lion would not get used the the stings and may cause him some health/stress issues. Lions typically either hide or perch on the LR. I have seen the volitans swim around quite a bit, but the one you are looking to add is a percher....they sit there and wait till their meals swim by.

Although dwarf lionfish tend to have small mouths, that doesn't rule out the possibility of it trying to swallow the coral beauty or damsels (unless you get a fairly large one i.e. adult). Many angels also have a tendency to nip the long rays of lionfish so that is why I say "iffy." Choose wisely if you go this route Scott is correct in that dwarf lions and many of their larger counterparts will perch within the liverock, which is why anemones of any sort are usually passed upon. Most snails should do fine with the eel (just make sure to stick train it) and possibly cleaner shrimp if the lionfish/eel accepts them for their cleaning abilities rather than an easy meal.

well the tank is gettin somewhere, my dad suprised me and stained the stand and hood so thats good. now im going to try to finish cleaning it later tonite. then we need to seal the newly stained stand/hood. so tomorrow i might try to re silicon the tank and then ill be able to keep gathering equipment and getting stuff going. i was also wondering if i should get a cannister still. just to cope with the messy eaters, thoughts? i was thinking a fluval something.
Thanks!
