How long have you kept them? I've thought about it before and looked into them a few different times. I talk myself out of it each time before I get too invested in the idea though.

So, is this the same 55 gallon tank that you already have a dwarf lion, snowflake eel, and porcupine puffer in that you are having trouble getting to eat?

Yea, but No more eel as it jumped to its death. No puffer as I sold it back to LFS. Only thing left in that 55 are anemoes, one hosting Nemo and lion fish

Originally I had corals along with the puffer, but its eating habit proven to be too much for my corals. So I got rid of the puffer and setting up a new tank for my corals. I just foUnd corals to be alot nore desirable then the puffer.

your still doing trial and error
you need to research on things you want size tank required ect
you do realize those 2 cows will out grow that 55g in less than a year .
I hope your prepared to get a bigger tank in the very near future
most fish stores wont buy back super large fish so you need to keep this in mind
if your not prepared for the long run I suggest you return them soon
super large fish are almost impossible to rehome and I doubt any public aquarium would take them in
