BF's stock list VS. Mine...

So my BF said if he could, he would get...

Tang
Trigger (not Niger)
porcupine pufferfish
Lionfish
Wrasse

We have a 80 gallon tank.
I think my stock list should be...

porcupine puffer #1
Wrasse (maybe fairy..suggestions?)
Tang
(maybe a dwarf angel or butterfly)

What do you think about our suggestions? I am going to go FOWLR for now.

I agree, very strongly. IMO, until he signs up on this site, don't consider much of what he wants! I'm not not trying to be harsh, but you were doing great until he got involved...At least, that's what I remember....

Oh I know! He isn't allowed to put a trigger in there or a lion etc. CAN I have those fish on
my list and will they get along together with inverts? (especially the puffer?)


What order should I add the fish??

The puffer and I believe the wrasse will probably take care of the inverts. Let`s see if anybody out there with these two will answer.

I know the puffer will and possibly the trigger (to wear down their "fused teeth). I believe the lion will eat inverts also.

Sometimes the temptation of the fresh shrimp or crab is just too much to bear...

Most of the fairy or flasher wrasses will be too small. Eventually the puffer will consider them a snack.

I suggest researching the trials and tribulations of other porcupine puffer owners before deciding on one for sure. They are as bad if not worse than the powder blue tangs for maintaining active cultures of ick. They also can grow to be nearly two feet long! This could pose a problem in the future.
