FU MANCHU!!!!!! Lol for a 55 gallon, I'd still go with a Fu Manchu over a fuzzy. For one the COLOR!!! dull colors( brown and white)=fuzzy, red, white, black, and yellow= Fu Manchu. Have you ever watched a Fu Manchu? Their spikes move in an awesome wave-like motion. They not only perch on top of rocks, but they like to stay sideways, and even upside down. They usually max out at about 5 inches. They aren't aggressive towards tankmates, or at least nmine isn't. I hand feed mine at times, but he prefers the stalking and hunting of its food. It's their instinct, so I don't deprive him of it. Fun to watch! I Love my little guy! Yeah.....I'm pretty bias on this one! Lol

In terms of lions? or just fish in general.

A lot of things can go with the three you listed as they only pose a threat to very small fish. and inverts of course.

In terms of Lions:
Fuzzy dwarf. (easiest to feed, several color forms available)
Zebra dwarf (a little less hardy)
Antennata (Nice big fins, still not as hardy)
Mombasa (once again not as hardy, but unique patterns)
Fu Manchu (one of the least hardy and most shy, but obviously unique looking)

I believe any of these can work (assuming your puffer leaves them alone. )Unfortunately any dwarf species tends to hide more than their larger counterparts.

I'm not going off of experience. Just reading. I've been doing a lot of research on which lion I want. (75 fowlr).
yes of the ones listed they are the least hardy and don't handle poor water conditions and are hard to get onto frozen. Solution: keep good water quality and feed live as long as necessary. If you want to put in the effort, and it is your favorite, then by all means do it. Plenty of people do successfully.

You want a fu Manchu, snowflake eel and stingfish?

I don't see any problems with that. Make sure you have a dsb. They bury themselves.

*disclaimer*. I am by no means am expert. I'm barely a beginner. I'm just guessing that it would be ok.

And a Papuan puffer :p dang...... How would I go about adding sand to a tank that's already cycling? Will it matter? Just throw in some bags and then rescape the rocks? I won't do it till I'm sure my lfs can get me one but is that the best easiest way?

Also how deep would I need?
