The compatibility chart on LA say puffers and lionfish are compatible. There could be conflict between an angler and puffer though. If the angler did try eating the puffer, the puffer would..well blow up and the angler hopefully would spit it out or die... With the angler and lion, I'd think adding the angler first would be best. Have no clue if the lion would think of the angler as food if the angler was introduced 2nd. If a 3" lion is then introduced to a tank with a 1" angler, he's not going to assume the lion is food.

If I did the puffer I wouldn't do the angler. It would be 1.lion and angler or 2.lion and puffer.

Now as for adding. The only reason I'm worried about adding the angler first is the angler my lfs has is definitely bigger than 1" my best guess is 3-4"

I was just saying in general like what a previous poster was saying about the puffer getting eaten. Get a wartskin which only grows up to 4". If your LFS has scorpionfish that works too. By the time you cycle it, the angler might be gone. Do they special order livestock?

Yes they special order but idk if it'll be gone haha. :p it's been there for quite some time. And i enjoy watching it haha. It's an assorted angler which says is fine in a 30 gallon. But may also grow to 9" however as far as I've read they usually reach about 6"

Man if I knew someone who owned, or I owned a 9" angler, I'd be scared that thing would eat me!

I know! But it'd be one awesome sight I keep changing my mind haha. Now I'm thinking I want just an angler tank and my 55 when I set it up will be a lion, puffer, and snowflake eel.

If I just had an angler do you think I'd be okay without a skimmer?

Do whatever. You'd have to make up the lack of movement of the angler with some awesome corals and macroalgae . No doubt you could go without a skimmer.

Haha okay after I add the angler I'll decide what to do to create entertainment...

As for feeding, I want to feed chromis/damsels. That will be okay for the fish, just expensive right? And how many fish should I feed per week?

It will be okay for the fish. Don't know how much, so I hope someone else chimes in, but a while back I read this thread, Tim's 29gal Biocube Reef / Angler Fish tank build He has several damsels in his tank just there for the fish to eat when it wants I guess.

I think that guy is overfeeding if there is always food in the tank.
