That tank would be sooooooo overstocked if you got all of those. They are very messy eaters. If you have a community tank, dont get a lion. It will eat anything up to 2/3 of its size sometimes.

Ha all lions except dwarfs really shouldn't be in anything under a 150. they get huge! Dwarfs I say 55 but no do put all those together you would need something like a 1000 gallon tank

I have a dwarf zebra in my 55 community, and he is doing well. The smallest fish is my ocellaris clown and the lion hasn't bothered him. I feed him feeder guppiers or shrimp 2x a week, and he seems healthy and happy.
