Advise me on stock for a 55

So my biocube hqi 29 came in cracked, and I think I'm going to do a 55g fowlr instead of a nano reef.

I was thinking

- Dwarf Lionfish
- Dwarf Angel
- some sort of smaller puffer
- Snowflake eel
- Tomato Clown

Or maybe

- Dwarf Lionfish
- Some sort of butterfly fish
- Dwarf Angel
- Snowflake eel
- Tomato Clown



Am I facing compatability issues anywhere? I'm concerned about the puffer's nipping tendencies. Open to more suggestions of other fish as well. Thanks.

I'd go with the first option. You shouldn't have any problems if you stock in the right order. Both should work but the butterfly fish might get to big.

No. In fact I'm doing something similar. I'm doing Fu Manchu lionfish, Papuan puffer, snowflake eel, hawkfish, and maybe a tomato clown or something. Im not 100% sure on stocking order.

Well it's more about fish aggression than size.

yes, just in the case with a lion which isn't truly aggressive could eat a small tomato clown, which can be quite aggressive.

Well true but usually there isn't that great of a difference in size at lfs.
