Aside from feeding it, letting it move to where it is happy and keeping the tank water clean, there is little else you can do.

Possibly, I am not sure if anemones have a need for HUFAs.

One more thing, I keet reading that rule of thumb for a fish only tank was 1 inch per gallon, even if you add all of my fish up and add for gerth it's about 20 inches of fish...

Like I talked about before I am upgrading to a 125 gallon in about 6 months, do you think the trigger and puffer will grow a lot in that time?

FW rule of thumb you have there....

SW is 1" of Adult sized fish, per 5 gallons of water, which allows for 6" of Adult sized fish. I stress adult, because those fish will grow, so you need to know what the average adult size of the fish will be. The rule of thumb is really a guideline, with the right selection I would say you could go 1" per 3g. HTH

I am wondering how my LFS I usually go to let me have so many damm fish in the tank, they know my setup, I am going to talk to them and maybe have them take the puffer and trigger back... thanks again for the help.
