Question 120 Gallon Aggresive FOWLR

I need some advise for stocking my 120 gallon tank (60x18x25.5). This is my list so far
-Niger Trigger
-Humu Humu Trigger
-Dog Face Puffer
-Emperor Angel
-Some sort of Tang (need input)
-Snowflake eel
What i want to know if these fish would work in my tank and if some of them wont or if there is too many can you give me some other options for replacement. Also if i wanted would a lionfish work instead of the puffer or would the triggers kill it. any help is apreciated thanks

Ahh the two Triggers together might get hairy.
Check this link: Marine Compatability Chart
It is very useful.
As for tang, I vote a nice Achilles Tang.

As far as the tang I would suggest something with an attitude with those tank mates. Maybe a sailfin.

no two triggers in a 120 gallon.I think the emperor might need a bit more room like 5-6' JMO. The eel could work if introduced before the trigger.As for the the tang maybe a purple or hippo.

So wat trigger would you recomend between a niger and humu. So the angel will work because its a 5 foot tank. What else would you suggest. right now this is the list
-Niger/Humu Trigger
-Dogface Puffer
-Emperor Angel
-Snowflake eel
-Tang
Just curious why i couldnt have the two triggers together because i have seen it done.

with this list could i keep any corals or invertebrate? If so which fish would and wouldnt work with them. Would subsituting the humu humu with a pink tail trigger instead be better? I just want some more color/movement and would only add a few corals/invertebrates. For the fish that wont work could you also give me some alternatives. thanks

No corals or inverts. Triggers would enjoy a nice crunchy crustacean and the Emperor would love some nice coral.

i wish that you could put the fish you want with all corals and inverts haha. either way a niger and pinktail would be better than a niger and humu right? read a little on humu and it seems to be more of a bully when it gets bigger

I don't know. I don't have any experience but I really don't think that you should put more than one Trigger in your tank.
