Thanks! Yeah, he should be good. He will eventually have the Valentini Toby and possibly the snowflake for a buddy. Only thing is I'll eventually have to
Swap the eel.

All in and looking good his bag salinity was 1.021 and my tank was 1.025. Had to do an hour and a half drip acclimation. I have him under the blues tonight! That way he can chill and relax stress free, no crazy bright lights.

Thanks, this was him this morning. I am realy considered a Valentini Toby puffer. Think he would be ok? I am afraid he is going to nip at the lion.

I am not getting any fish until the lion is eating and is comfortable.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would think a Toby puffer would be fine with a lionfish. They really like to pick at clams more than anything, from what I gather. I used to have one, until my wife bought me a Derasa clam years back, without knowing they didn't get along. I said, thanks babe, and the Toby went to the LFS that day. Bummer too, I really liked that fish. That's also my name btw... Toby.
