If you currently have a black volitan you should stay away from puffers , triggers and even angels. They all tend to bite the spines off lions and kill them. More so the trigger and puffers than the angels. My 180 stocking is a naso tang, white cheek tang, emperor angel and, porcupine puffer.

So I guess my next question is what would you out with the lion fish. I'm thinking yellow tang, naso tang, a harlequin tusk, and a snow flake eel,


I would really love to do a puffer if some kind, a Koran angel, and a Picasso trigger but I heard Rey all nip at fins

should be ok with the two I think but tangs can be quite teratorial espically if any are the same shape and or colour. harlequin tusks are nice fish! maybe a butterfly or a foxface would go well in with what you are already looking at but make sure you'd be buying adult size fish with the lion and the snowflake. tbh though I have not had huge amount of expenience with lions but have seen plenty of threads on different websites with picasso triggers and procupine puffers living with lionfish may be worth popping a message to elude82 as he keeps a picasso trigger, lionfish and valentini puffer together

Ya know? I really would like to do a Picasso trigger and a pufferfish. But have heard of fun nipping with the lions. If anyone else can advise me that would be great. Thanks
