alright cool thanks...are humus less agressive? Could they be compatible with a dwarf angel or a longnose butterfly or a heniochus butterfly? I know I used to have a porcupine and it ate my clownfish. Maybe that was just an agressive puffer and too small of a clown

i had a humu that i sold too my friend and when i first got it is was only agressive too me and would attck the glass and bite me once, but after 2 weeks or so it calmed down, it was about 4" and it lived with a snow flake moray eel with no problems i also sold my friend the eel and the two are living peacefully together still, picassos are one of the not so aggressive triggers, but they have a trigger attitude and teeth and could rip apart a fish, i dont know about teh dwarf angle, im sure the butterflys could be fine if they dont pester the trigger.

I wouldn't see a problem between the both of them while it's not feeding time. You may see a little aggression when you do feed them. My porcupine is very happy with the Fermosa wrasse that I have.. but if that wrasse dare touch his krill... he is on a death mission.. good thing the wrasse is much faster and the porcupine gives up once he has to swim mor ethen 1/2 the tank. It depends on the size of the fish, bigger the fish sometimes higher the aggression.

My porcupine bites me all the time while I clean the algea off the glass. Good thing he is only 3 inches in length.
