"Husbandry" is your tank keeping habits.

A predator tank would be fish that are aggressize and eat other fish basically..fish like large eels, anglers, sharks etc

For live stock it's totally up to you but you need to pick like a fish or coral or whatever and kinda build around it there's so many different combos just all depends on your taste

I do like puffers but there not reef safe if you wanted coral then look at tangs there fun to watch there almost always out. But if you go aggressive there's triggers which are also out a lot so like I said lots of combos

you need to decide if you're going reef or not. If not, are you going with a predator tank, or a peaceful fowlr etc. Some fish are not reef safe and will nip at clams, corals, inverts etc. It really is up to you. Once you decide what kind of tank you're going with, do some reasearch into the fish you would like to have and go from there.
