Humu Rectangle Triggerfish tankmates?

im pondering about upgrading my current tank to a 90g and was looking at possible fish to get.

anyway, saw this guy on la and it kinda spiked my interests considering im not much of a trigger fan.

other fish i was looking at are

harlequin tusk(ausie) <--- really want
magnificent foxface. <--- really want
a bristletooth tang
maybe a radiata lion but that one is a maybe.

fish i have are

banggia pair
flame angel
yellow corris wrasse

any input would be appreciated.

I have heard that these triggers can be rather aggressive . Even though what I know about that particular trigger is second hand info I would be worried he would tear up your cardinals .

Yea I remember you had a hard time getting a pair that wouldn't fight and would hate for them to get killed.

exactly. ive been looking at aggressive/predator tanks on youtube and really liking the looks of them. ive skimmed through some old threads and slitherbomb? recommended a zebra eel and i really like the looks of that.

i guess i will need to start a separate tank all together. so i guess a new thread specific to a 90 gallon aggressive/predator tank... boo. i was hoping to just upgrade my tank and not have to buy any new equipment or more rock.

Well I just had to remove my pink tail trigger because he was fighting with chop so if the supposed calmest trig would mess with him then indont trust triggers ever again .

Zebra eels are really cool. But they need at least 125 gallons because they can grow up to 5 feet! That's why we went with a snowflake
