predator tank ?'s

I recently had my community tank wiped out by a bout of velvet.. I am letting the tank sit fishless for 8 weeks.. When I start to add fish again I am considering doing a predator based tank.. Im thinking of having a lionfish, porcupine puffer, yellow tang, harlequin tuskfish and possibly an angelfish of some type.. Im wondering about aggresion issues, mostly the puffer and lionfish.. I have read some places say they are fine together others say the porcupine will go after the lionfish.. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these fish together.. My tank is a 90 gal with a 20Gal sump, lots of live rock and a skimmer..


Thanks
Shane.

Well if your talking about a dwarf zebra lion fish then alright awesome! But the vilotian lion fish needs at least a 150 gallon tank because they get so big.

Ya, no volitan for me.. Probably either a zebra or a spotfin, will definitely be in the dwarf group..

I'm going in the same direction right now as well... Got 2 triggers, 2 damsels and gonna be adding a dog-faced puffer and a black volitan to finish it out.. From everyone I've talked to, puffers and lions can co-exist, you just have to watch for fin-nipping, and make sure the puffer isn't too small, but being that you're going with a dwarf lion..you should be ok
