Stock suggestions for 180

I have a foxface in there right now. And a couple damsels. What kind of predators would you do?

Nice wrasse. Maybe a trigger, puffer, and of course not predators but there is something very regal to me about some of the prettier tangs. Or a sweet angel always rocks.

I'd lose the damsels based on a zillion stories of how they cause problems.

I'd get a Blue Throat Trigger ( maybe a pair?)...a Harlequin Tusk...some kind of large Angel...a Flame Hawk...some kind of wrasse...maybe some Anthias and a Tang. Maybe a Heniocus Butterfly?

Damsels tend to be nasty little fish and almost always become aggressive to tank mates. Hang out on these forums long enough and you'll see all sorts of stories of people wanting to get rid of them. They are tough to catch too (especially in a 180g.

You wanted predators. A lot of my list angels, anthias, butterfly, etc are not predators. That list is actually what I plan to do with my future tank. Hoping to upgrade my 75g to a 180...maybe even 300g later this year if money permits.

I like most of your list. I don't have much in there right now so it should be somewhat easy to get them. I'll use a pool skimmer lol. Jk

I want a
Picasso trigger
A harlequin tusk
An angel
Porcupine puffer
A yellow tang
A hippo tang
Maybe a wrasse
I'm not sure what a fire fish ill have to look at those and anthias

I woulld also lose the damsals I had three in my 20 gal tank one three stripe and 2 yellow tail blue damsals, anyways the 2 blue ones were vary territorial and like be dicks to everyone. I ended up haveing to take out all the LR and take them out cause they were teaming up on my new 6 line, and now the 3 stripe is older he's getting more agressive and territorial so I thinks he's next to go.
