How many types of scorpion fish can live together?

Hi,

So I'm off the shark idea, and the planted fowlr idea.
Now I've got another idea, a scorpion fish dedicated tank.
It would almost be a waste if I just had one in the whole 300 gallon aquarium,
so I was wondering how many, and which, species/types could live together in the
same 150 gallon aquarium?
Even though nothing is moving and they are all hiding, you could think it would be a
boring show tank, but it will be fun for the visitors to try and find them.
And when they do move it's pretty cool

K, So do you think I should have more than 1 in a 200-250 gallon aquarium?
Sorry but I don't get what you mean by sub-par, because It means not
measuring up to standards according to dictionary.com

Why don't you try and specify a bit more the scorpionfish you are interested in. There are quite a few "scorpionfish" species available and all can vary in care quite a bit

Like Stingfish, ghoulfish, waspfish, Leaf Fish. Those are the kinds I'm looking at.

I changed the aquarium, so know its going to be a shallow rimless tank,

mostly because I don't want it to crack because of how tall it was going to
be.
