Of course compatibility matters.

I tend to go with a non mathematical approach. Depends on size of fish, bio load, your filtration, etc. if unsure, it's best to come up with a list and get feedback on it. Don't ask a LFS as they will likely give questionable advice.

The OP was asking about putting a Niger Trigger in a 55 that already had a few fish. Compatibility with a Trigger is always tricky. Some go crazy and start killing tankmates after being a model resident for a long time. I would not risk it in a smaller tank just for that reason.

My LFS wouldn't sell me a fish because it was going to be too big for my fish tank. It was for my freshwater when I had it up. I always shop there now. So some fish stores are good.

I was upset at first, but now that I know what I know. I am glad.

Not all LFS are bad. I have one local store that is usually good on advice and another that is usually good. Those are both independent stores. The two local Petco stores generally have people that are clueless beyond book smarts that they were trained. I know they all aren't bad, so not knocking Petco in general. "Sure, that Juvenile Saillfin Tang will be okay in your 30g once its cycled in two weeks". I actually heard that at one.
