Yea the angler is definately the must have anyways. I never really paid much attention to them before, but I seen one a couple weeks ago at my lfs in a nano. It was so freaking awsome. It definately inspired this tank. The lionfish was just an afterthought. I'm not really set on one. But I think I need a free swimmer for this tank. The eel will be the rock dweller, the angler the bottom dweller, any suggestions for a swimmer? Remember it's gonna go reef eventually.
Yeah,,,nothing....Sooner or later the "swimmer" will be a little to curious and gulp..
My angler is a loner and thats just the way it is...
QTing is a good thing

I'm thinking about doing a preditor reef tank in a few months. Well maybe like 6 months. Anyways Im going to use a 55 gal. I'm thinking an angler, snowflake eel, and one maybe two lion fish? Will lions fight? The fish will be max adult size 5-6 inches. Is this rediculously overstocked? And these guys won't eat snails and hermits will they?
