Okay. cause this is the one fish that my lfs has warned me about for being that poisoness. And he said they were highly poisoness. Idk if I wanna risk stickin my hand in there all the time in a tank that small.

Haha. But I might consider it if all I need to make my tank suitable is a few more bags of sand so it can burry itself.

Would a lion, puffer, eel, and scorpion fish make a good combo that isn't too packed in a 55? That sounds like a nice predator combo to me. Haha

sounds pretty good to me. The puffer is the only fish that's really active, so as long as you have a good method of waste removal you should be good.

imo once they are full grown that will be a little overstocked, a 75 would be perfect just cause how narrow the 55s are. its definitely doable though in a 55 dont get me wrong like i said i just dont like the narrowness of the tank.

Okay. Sounds good. I wanna upgrade sometime. Idk how long it'll take though. I have a skimmer and will do water changes whenever needed.

Does anyone know how deep of a sand bed ill need? I think those 4 fish will make exactly what I'm looking for

Also does anyone know where I can find a profile for the stingfish?

Hmmmm... My lfs/friend won't let me get it haha. He said it needs a 3" sand bed and its deadly venomous. So now I'm looking for another fish like that stingfish to replace its spot.

I thought about that but they don't stay small. And I heard they will try to eat the puffer and choke and ill have 2 dead fish.
