Not sure what you plan to have as far as flow in this tank . You need very very little flow for an angler That is another reason they should be kept in tanks by themselves.

Idk. I figure ill have some flow. But probably just enough with the power head pointing right at the surface. Since the angler sticks more to the sandbed he should be fine right? Also... I just ran into a 20 gal tank. Would he be fine in a 20? I might just put him in that under my 55 sense I have an open stand.

Just to give you an idea on how low the flow needs to be . I'm only have 600 gph in my 40 b angler tank . A wartskin would probably be better off in a 20 l than mixed in the 55 IMO since you want good flow to remove the detritus from the other high waste fish ( eel and lion). My angler even though I only had him a few days is always perched on the rock not so much the sand.

Lions also prefer low flow. I plan to get a black longspine sea urchin to help with algae and detritus. My only flow will probably be from my return pump. I hear they eat like CRAZY.

Well they're not super expensive. I'm going to see what my nitrates are at once the messy fish are in and see if I can manage enough water changes to keep them pretty low. We'll see.

Khij, your making me want a predator tank now. Your stock list is something along the lines of what I was thinking. I want a lion, bad. They are so interesting to me. I cant put a lion in with my clowns, 6 line & royal though. lets see some pics!

Well I don't got anything but a cycling tank right now but I'm soooo excited to start stocking! I'm hoping within the next couple days my nitrites will start to drop.
