I think I have decided not to get the wartskin angler after all. Read they have a bad habit of trying to eat too large of things and ending up killing them both. Any suggestions on what I could get thats a predator but can co-exist with the others on my list to replace him?

A large tank, no matter the type, should have a tang IMO. Along with cutting others off that list of yours, like the shark.

Lionfish ate my anthias!
The tale stuck out of his mouth for 3 days(just rubbing his $40 snack in my face!).
If the fish owned are what you will keep I would NOT add;
The shark(no no for aquarium period{please read on them})
the lionfish.
The two angles may cause trouble but probably not as the coral beaty is smaller.
My 120 fowlr/predator has 1 lionfish,1 snowflake moray eel and 1 miniautus grouper.
It can look empty till feeding time and then it is TIGHT!
Lions are one fish that really will eat themselves to death(unlike the myth of all fish doing this and just dying from polluted water!)
They really won't stop if there is something to put in their mouth.
I feed no more then 2 times a week.
All have been trained to eat frozen cocktail shrimp!

To small for an Achilles IMO. I'd skip a leopard wrasse in a predator setup, they're much better reef inhabitants and would probably get picked on or out competed for food

Edit-I missed that you already own some of these fish, sorry. Doh. If you have the wrasse an he's already doing well he may be ok then

The achillies is a beautiful tang. I also like the mimic lemon peel and the powder brown. (Sailfins are pretty cool too.) Ya the shark was a last minute add on. Wasn't sure if I'd do it or not. But with everything being around 5 inches at least, I didn't think it would bother anyone. Saw some YouTube videos of people with them in their reef tanks. The wrasse is doing great, got her from my lfs after seeing one in their not for sale display tank.

Oh no! Thats a bummer about your anthias. What kind of lionfish was it?

Just found an ad for a 220 gallon drilled tank. Comes with 100 lbs of dry live rock. A skimmer, uv sterilizer, 2 canister filters, stand, and 2 pumps. For $800 gonna email the guy and see if he'll hold onto it for me. Gotta get my car looked at first (may have to replace a cv joint) before I can justify buying a tank. Heres hopeing.

And a Uhaul to get it where you want it. That isn't even considering all the friends you'll need. Sounds like a good deal to me if it's in good shape. Good luck.
