New tank mate!! Picked up a niger trigger (2in) for 23 bucks. So the stocklist is taking to take shape
So far we have
Snowflake clownfish
Niger trigger

We are looking at
Blonde naso tang
sailfin tang-desjardini
Some form of puffer(blue spot/valentini)
Lionfish (volitan or devil)
Another trigger(picasso/assasi/clown)
2 bottom dwellers (prob an engineer goby and a tiger wardi/ diamond goby)

Obviously in not trying to have all of these. But these are the majority of the fish that have made the cut. The only 2 that are shoe ins are the lionfish and puffer. Everything else is up for discussion

Believe me, skip the picasso or clown trigger. I lost mine a couple months ago and it really sucked when he was killed. Literally teared apart.

In order for me to skip them, viable options must be presented as well

I would disagree, I'd skip the lionfish. Yeah they are pretty, and a lot of people have them, but in my opinion they are boring, just floating around.. The life of the party is my Huma aka Picasso. He is always active! I have a lionfish, but it is a Fu Manchu. But, I am bias to my trigger, because he is what made me want to start my aggressive tank. Lol
Here is the lineup of my aggressives:
1. Fu Manchu lionfish
2. Maroon Clown
3. Huma Huma Aka Picasso trigger
4. Lunar Wrasse
5. Foxface Lo
6. Valentini Puffer
7. Blood Red Hawkfish( which I think is the best looking Hawkfish species)
8. Spotted Grouper( which I added last night)

Also, I had a Scooter Blenny( I know weird, but the others didn't mess with him) but last week I put him in my community tank.

And, yes, I know that seems like a lot for a predator tank, but I got them all as juveniles, and I stay on top of frequent water changes, and the parameters. I will be upgrading to at least a 200 gallon tank in the near future. My fish are happy, and they all get along. Although every new comet, must go through my Hawkfish's approval!!!! Lol
