I have heard that they are very difficult to take care of and feed. Never owned one though.

Avoid aggressive fish such as triggers, angels, most puffers, large wrasses, etc. The dogface puffer should be fine as they tend to be shy. Many must be fed live food for a while while trying to stick train to prepared foods.

Ribbon eels are shy feeders and would have trouble getting food because puffers and triggers are real pigs. Ribbons are best for species tanks.

If this is in your 110, I don't think it would be ok. Just because your very stocked, I think crowding may be an issue and it would get attacked.
