120 gallon Predator

I have a 120 gallon tank 60x18x25 and was wondering what i could stock it with. I know for sure that i want a dogface puffer, snowflake eel, and some sort of trigger but dont know which one i can put. Then i dont know what else will work with them so any advice would be great.

The snowflake eel would be a good choice. It`s the only one of the three I`ve ever had. One piece of advice is make sure of a tight fitting lid as snowflake eels are exceptional escape artist. I know several that have lost theirs by it getting out of the tank.

The smaller fish might be in trouble when the eel gets bigger. I would suggest a yellow tang as they come with an attitude.
