Yay predatory tank!

I've wanted to do this for so long! And now I finally have what I need to do it.

I only have 36 pounds in there now. Much more to be added later.

Its going to be my baby tank for the smaller fish that wouldn't do well in the 350. I like raising them.

My list is:

Miniautus grouper

Undulated/ huma trigger

And a bamboo cat shark egg( any advice on this)

the undulate trigger is the most aggressive of all. i would be worried about one of those in a community tank.
i saw your other post about the shark egg. i don't have much experience with the hatched sharks but there is nothing to the egg. you just wait until it hatches.

Oh interesting well I will definitely stay away from an undulated trigger then and go with the huma. And ok cool that sounds easy enough! Lol

Oh what about a clown trigger. Those are my absolute favorite but I hear they are also very mean

the clown is next in line. they are also pretty aggressive. the huma huma is a better bet. i'm not saying it can't be done, but i have seen those fish behave so ferociously that i would be afraid to put my hand in that tank.

you would click the button that says "new thread" just below the advertisement banner towards the top of the page.
a 65 gallon tank isn't ideal for a tang. you'll have to get a larger tank eventually, but if you got it small, you could get a year or so out of him, before having to re-home him. they are just open water swimmers for the most part. eventually the confinement will stress the fish.
maroon clowns are more aggressive than other clowns, and get bigger than most also. territorial mostly. they pick a spot and defend it. see if you can start your own thread and we'll give you some ideas.

I think I'm going to risk the clown trigger. I've got a couple months to decide though lol.

How do triggers do together?
