Compatability Advice

Hey Guys:

Need some advice. I have a 50gal fowlr setup with two triggers (huma and niger) and a maroon clown. I just added a bicolor angel on the advice of the guy at the lfs. Problem is the angel looks scared of the niger and gets chased around the tank. I haven't seen him eat either yet, been two days. Should I keep him and hope he adapts and starts to eat or take him back and get a puffer or wrasse.

I wanted to put a tomato clown in there but was told he wouldnt get along with the maroon clow.

Any thoughts??

Umm... I would probably keep them away from each other, maybe put the niger into the qt for a "Time Out" and try feeding the angel after the niger is in the qt, to see if its because the angel is afraid of the niger. Just a thought

Do you plan a tank size upgrade? These fish you mention (with the exception of the clown) are gonna get pretty big. IMO the 2 triggers fighting is going to be the main issue eventually as well as a bioload overload. Couple that with the puffer and grouper, you are going to need a system of 100s of gallon for this to work long term.
IMO, I would take the poor Bicolored back. he is most likely going to get picked on unmercifully and definately not add any more fish.
