Just got my new tank up and running!!

My 55 freshwater is no longer. It is now a FO/LR tank. Right now I have 50 lbs. of Sand/Crushed Coral and around 35 lbs. of LR. I am using a Magnum 350 with two Bio-Wheel 30's. There are two powerheads as well. The lighting is just the 2 15W lightbulbs that came with the tank. I have 2 triggers a Niger and a Humma Picasso. I will be adding a small lionfish in the next week or two. There/will be photos on my website(link in my signature).

Nice looking tank and fish! However, you already have two fish that are going to outgrow the 55g, I would advice against adding another one to the mix due to potential problems with bioload and aggression down the road, unless you have some alternate plans for them already.

I know that they will eventually need a bigger home. I plan on getting a 150 after I get out of college. They are both under 3" now so I figure I have some time before they become to large.

Cool, if you run into problems down the road...being fairly local I should be able to house them a bit for you until the tank gets set up.

I would reconsider the lion. IME triggers will quite often nip on the spines of lionfish, which can result in stress and eventually kill the lion if the behavior persists.

Yea, I haven't gotten the lion yet. I don't think I am going to now. Anyone have any other suggestions as to something that I could add?
