First off, a 55 is way too small for a Niger trigger. They can get almost a foot, and swim a lot. They need a 125. A lot of people here will agree.

After you get rid of him, what about a school of blue green reef chromis?

I believe the Foxface would need a 75 min.

Maybe a mystery or radiant wrasse? Not sure about compatability with the lion fish though. (never had one).

Fox face needs at minimal a 70g. I have a thread about the foxface rabbit fish. Amazing looking fish. I posted a picture of mine so the OP knows what we are taking about.

Definitly a great fish, i have one.

Depends on the footprint, and a 55 provides a good enough fpotprint for a OneSpot. Kdpuffer has one in a 55 and it works out well.

A lot of 55s are really thin. That could be a big problem.
